Meshing Stiffness Analysis of Four Ring-Plate-Type Pin-Cycloidal Gear Planetary Drive


Article Preview

The four ring-plate-type pin-cycloidal gear planetary drive is a new type of the cycloid. Use the new repair tooth profile gap mesh analysis method to Calculate the cycloid mesh stiffness. the mesh stiffness of the cycloid is solved, According to simulation results based on the ANSYS / LS-DYNA. and the results were compared with theoretical calculations, both mutual authentication. It can be use to improve the prototype program at last.
