Dynamic Analysis of Contacting Spur Gear Pair for Fast System Simulation
The prime source of vibration and noise in a gear system is originated from transmission error between the meshing gears. In this paper, the dynamic modeling method and response of a spur gear pair for the efficient system simulation are investigated by using a detailed contact analysis at each time step. Input values such as time-varying mesh stiffness and static transmission error excitation are not required in this investigation because mesh forces are obtained by contact analysis directly. The efficient contact search kinematics and algorithms in the context of the compliant contact model are developed to detect the interactions between teeth surfaces. In this investigation the compliant force model based on the Herzian law is employed using Coulomb friction force model, and dynamic transmission error (DTE) and mesh frequency values of contacting gear system are also illustrated.
