Study on Contact Force of Tooth Profile Modification
Linear, conic, cubic, and sine relief curve are compiled and established in MATLAB, on which gear models are built in UG and a new method of establishing relief gear models is proposed in this paper. Based on the theory of elastic, contact method is used on the proposed finite element models of gears by software LS-DYNA. Total contact force of teeth face, contact force of single tooth and equivalent stress on relief gears in different cases are obtained. The results show that contact impact existing in meshing between teeth of gears is ameliorated, contact force of tooth face and equivalent stress is reduced. The effect of cubic and sine relief curve is the best. So dynamic simulation on relief gears has great significance for reducing contact force between teeth faces of gears.
