 ABSTRACTDeveloping an analytical approach and modeling procedure to evaluate stressdistribution and quenching process under velocity and moment would provide a usefultool to improve spur gear design with high efficiency and low cost. Based on the theoriesof gear engagement, contact analysis and friction, a three dimensional finite elementmodel of the spur gear system was established to investigate stress distribution andanalyze the advantage of quenching process.
A full-scale deformable-body model and asimplified discrete model were both shown to be accurate through extensive comparisons to thetheoretical database generated in this study.
The major work is summarized as follows.
Applying Finite Element Method, contact stress analysis of meshing spur gearswas conducted.
Applying the relation equation in Pro/Engineer, an accurate three dimensionalspur gear model was developed. This model can be used to analyze manysimilar spur gears for design optimization.
Three dimensional finite element models of spur gear system were established toinvestigate stress distributions over operating speeds with consideration of lubrication conditions. The three-dimensional FEA program developed can be auseful tool in investigating design parameters for spur gears.
A theoretical finite element model of spur gear system was developed. Theresearch result shows that the theoretical methods presented in this thesis have
