Numerical Thermal 3D Model to Predict the Surface and Body Temperature of Spur and Helical Plastic Gears


Tooth surface wear is an important failure mode in plastic gears and this primarily caused by the surface temperature increasing to a value close to the melting point of the material. Thus, it is critical to compute the temperature of the gear pair in an accurate fashion. This paper will focus on the prediction of gear temperature of plastic gears using a numerical heat transfer model based on 3D finite difference method.
