Double helical gears are becoming increasingly relevant, especially in the fields of drive technology. Interaction effects between the two halves of the gear are becoming increasingly important to ensure low-noise operation. In the current state of the art design processes the interactions between the individual gear meshes of the left and right half are neglected.
This paper, therefore, presents a method for considering the quasi-static stiffness behavior of double helical gears for gear design by using an FE-based approach. The developed method is validated by means of experimental studies. The validated method allows to derive design and tolerance recommendations for double helical gears in order to optimize the excitation behavior.
