Research on Dynamic Characteristic of Planetary Gear Train by Visualization Technology
Based on the multi-body dynamics theory and visualization technology, a planetary gear train system is studied in RecurDyn. The multi-body dynamics model of the 2K-H planetary gear train system is built to do the visual analysis on dynamic characteristic of the planetary gear system severally in the ideal steady-state condition and the random-load condition, than the real-time dynamic contact stress and some other meaningful results of the key components are gained. Compared the related simulation results with that of the theoretical analysis, it is known that two kinds of results are consistent and the simulation analysis on the planetary gear train system is correct and accuracy. From the research above, the new idea and analytical tool are provided for the traditional, static, "redundancy" design method of the gear system, and also the effective technical mean is provided in conceptual design of complex mechanical products to predict the performance, then to reduce the "birth defects" in design stage and also an effective and efficient technical means for engineering applications is offered for optimal design and developing new product on gear train system.
