Research on Curvature of Tooth Flank of Gleason Spiral Bevel Gears
According to spiral bevel gear machining process, use the method of computer simulation to get the discrete points’ three-dimensional coordinates of Gleason spiral bevel gear tooth surface, and then solve the tooth surfaces’ NURBS surface as the unified mathematical model. On this basis, research the curvature of tooth surfaces of various types of Gleason spiral bevel gear, draw the mean curvature diagram, and study the link between the adjustment of processing parameters and the change of tooth surfaces’ mean curvature. Establish a theoretical foundation for the processing error adjustment based on tooth surface’s curvature diagram.
