Reliability-Based Sensitivity Design of Gear Pairs with Non-Gaussian Random Parameters
Based on reliability design theory, by using the Edgeworth series method, and the sensitivity analysis method, the reliability sensitivity of the cylindrical gear pairs with non-Gaussian random parameters are extensively discussed and a numerical method for reliability sensitivity design is presented. The variation regularities of reliability sensitivity are obtained and the effects of design parameters on reliability of the cylindrical gear pairs are studied. The presented method provides the theoretic basis for reliability design of cylindrical gear pairs.
