Development of Bevel Gear Motion Transmission Graphs with FEM
The article presents the course of the calculations and conclusions from the analysis of a bevel gear motion transmission using FEM. The motion transmission graphs show the angular variation of the driven gear in the case of a driving pinion that rotates with a constant angular velocity. In contrary to the classical Tooth Contact Analysis, which is carried out on stiff bodies, FEM analysis includes deformations of mating gears. Thus, it brings more realistic information on dynamic behavior and noise characteristic of analyzed gear drive.
