Apply principles learned in Chapter 11 to actual design and selection of spur gear systems. Calculate forces on teeth of spur gears, including impact forces associated with velocity and clearances. Determine allowable force on gear teeth, including the factors necessary due to angle of involute of tooth shape and materials selected for gears. Design actual gear systems, including specifying materials, manufacturing accuracy, and other factors necessary for complete spur gear design. Understand and determine necessary surface hardness of gears to minimize or prevent surface wear. Understand how lubrication can cushion the impact on gearing systems and cool them. Select standard gears available from stocking manufacturers or distributors.
