Research on Simulating and Modeling Method for Spiral Bevel Gears with Actively Controllable Contact Patterns
An innovative modeling method of spiral bevel gear is presented in detail for actively controllable contact patterns. Firstly the 3D model gear of is given, and then creates its modified model by analyzing the contact patterns of work condition. Lastly, being based upon meshing theory, the modified gear moves relatively to the pinion blank, and simultaneously carries out Boolean Subtracting on the pinion blank, which is the modeling process of a pinion’s tooth surfaces. With this method, modeling of spiral bevel gears is more convenient to get, and gear contact patterns is easier to control actively.
