The paper presents a study on the tooth root, rim and web stresses of thin-rimmed spur gear structure with symmetrical web, based upon 3D FEM calculations. In order to identify some gear design directions, the effects of rim and web thickness on gear stress behaviour are investigated, and maximum stresses resulting from actual rim and web contribution are compared.
