TCA Principe and Application of the Double Circular Arc Tooth Spiral Bevel Gear
Tooth contact analysis (TCA) is an effective tool for meshing analysis of the double circular arc profile spiral bevel gear (DCAPSBG), and it is the basis of loading tooth contact analysis and finite element analysis. The TCA application is developed by Visual Basic and MATLAB mixed programming method, this paper compared the results of the TCA application analysis with the results of contact area check experiment on one pair of gears with given parameters. The TCA application had been verified by real experiment, this provided an effective approach for the design of DCAPSBG.
