Failure Analysis and Transmission Parameters Optimization Design of WN Gears Drive


Article Preview

This paper taking the high strength of WN gears drive as target, which makes the WN gear device has light weight and compact size. The WN gears drive optimization design model of actual project is put forward by multiple-factor comprehensive failure analysis. The research is to solve nonlinear constrained optimization problems by the method of sequence quadratic programming (SQP) in MATLAB optimization toolbox. Using the optimization program of engineering design examples to analyze the relationship about gear drive parameters on contact and bending fatigue strength, thus the engineering design method of the WN gears drive is improved. This research not only achieved the optimization design of WN gears drive, but also revealed that the interactions between transmission parameters and strength design of the gear, which improved design efficiency and provided application foundation for CAD design of WN gears driving.
