Analysis on the Failure Mechanism of Un-Connecting Rod Engine Gear Assembly


Article Preview

With the respect of the phenomenon that gear teeth are broken in the gear-gear ring striking gear of un-connecting rod engine, this paper analyzes its movement rule, and applies the explicit integral finite element method to simulate its dynamics. It shows that the theory engagement of gear-gear ring conforms to the rule of epicyclic gear train, and the deviation of the phase angle caused by mismachining tolerance is the main reason why gear teeth are broken.
