14.1 BEVEL GEARS – PROBLEM 1
A pair of bevel gears is transmitting 10 kW from a pinion rotating at 600 rpm to gear
mounted on a shaft which intersects the pinion shaft at an angle of 60
o
. The pinion has
an outside pitch diameter of 200 mm, a pressure angle of 20
o
and a face width of 40
mm, and the gear shaft is rotating at 200 rpm. Determine ( a ) the pitch angles for the
gears, ( b ) the forces on the gear, and ( c ) the torque produced about the shaft axis

14.2 BEVEL GEARS – PROBLEM 2
The bevel pinion shown in Fig.14.2 rotates at 960 rev/min in the clockwise direction,
viewing from the right side and transmits 5 kW to the gear. The mounting distances, the
location of all bearings, and the radii of the pitch circles of the pinion and gear are
shown in pitch cones in the figure. Bearings A and C should take the thrust loads. Find
the bearing forces on the gear shaft.

14.3 BEVEL GEARS – PROBLEM 3
A bevel gear pair has to be designed to transmit 6 kW power at 750 rpm. The shaft
angle is 90
o
. Speed ratio desired is about 2.5. The prime mover is induction motor and
the driven side is connected to a belt conveyor.
Data: W = 6 kW, n
1
= 750 rpm, i ≈ 2.5 and ∑ = 90
o
Prime mover is electric motor. Out put is linked to a conveyor.
Solution:
To solve the problem the following assumptions are made.
1. The gears are to be mounted on antifriction bearings in a gear box and are subjected
to extensive shock due to sudden loading of the belt conveyor.
2. The conveyor gearbox has to last for 20 years for which hardened gears are
selected.
3. The gears are of continuous duty and are straddle mounted on antifriction ball
bearings.
4. The pinion material is made of C45 steel of hardness 380 Bhn and tensile strength
σ
ut
= 1240 MPa. The gear is made of ductile iron grade 120/90/02 of hardness 331 Bhn
and tensile strength σ
ut
= 974 MPa. Both gears are hobbed, HT and OQ&T and ground.
5. A factor of safety of 1.5 and 1.2 on bending and contact fatigue strengths of the
materials was assumed.
Solution:
We will first determine the allowable stresses for the pinion and gear materials.
For pinion material, σ
