Modal Analysis of Self-Repairing Composite Gear Based on ANSYS
The mechanical properties of self-healing composite gear with microcapsules can be effectively improved. Based on Finite Elements Analysis method, the modal analysis of three different formulations of composites gear have been carried out in order to explore effects of self-healing microcapsule on the modal parameters of a gear. The comparison of results shows that modulus ratio is one of important inflencing factors on the natural frequency of a gear. The study in this paper provides a good foundation for further research on self-healing composite gear.
