Abstract

This thesis report presents a design problem on the study of dynamic properties in a spur gear system. The system consists of two in-line spur gears, defined as pinion and gear, both cut by a pinion cutter, operated at a center distance greater than standard. The design problem is based upon the published literature. In this study, the dynamic model is created in the computer program Dynamic Analysis of Spur Gear Transmissions (DANST). The program solution contains several outputs. The primary output of concern is the stress at the root of the tooth due to bending caused by the tangential component of the tooth load. The model is optimized by minimizing the difference in stress between the pinion and gear. This optimization occurs for a pinion offset less than the static optimization of the stress.
