We would like to appreciate and give good thanks to our instructor Msc Abiyu Solomon who arranged us in participation of this type of good knowledge acquiring presentation

`

`

`

The huge problem we faced is shortage of time for study and arranging all things we are told to do within the given duration. Any error in this presentation is the cause of hurrying to do the presentation If little more time is given for as we clearly and gently present this topic in good manner

`

`

`

This presentation deals about the design criterion of chain drive and gears. In gear design we consider different gear types such as spur gear, bevel gear, helical gear and worm gear. We also try to show their designing procedure and special materials of them.

`

`

Chain drive is diff. from rope and belt drive in chain drive there is no slip. The chains are made up of number of rigid links which are hinged together by pin joints in order to provide the necessary flexibility for wrapping round the driving and driven wheels.

The toothed wheels are known as sprocket wheels or simply sprockets.

Advantages ` As no slip takes place during chain drive, hence perfect velocity ratio is obtained. ` Since the chains are made of metal, therefore they occupy less space in width than a belt or rope drive. ` It may be used for both long as well as short distances. ` It gives a high transmission efficiency (upto 98 percent). ` It gives less load on the shafts. ` It has the ability to transmit motion to several shafts by one chain only. ` It transmits more power than belts. ` It permits high speed ratio of 8 to 10 in one step. ` It can be operated under adverse temperature and atmospheric conditions

Disadvantages ` The production cost of chains is relatively high. ` The chain drive needs accurate mounting and careful maintenance, particularly lubrication and slack adjustment. ` The chain drive has velocity fluctuations especially when unduly stretched.

First of all, determine the velocity ratio of the chain drive
Select the minimum number of teeth on the smaller sprocket or pinion from using standard table

`

Find the number of teeth on the larger sprocket
Determine the design power by using the service factor, such that Design power = Rated power × Service factor Choose the type of chain, number of strands for the design power and r.p.m. of the smaller sprocket

`

Note down the parameters of the chain, such as pitch, roller diameter, minimum width of roller etc USING this table

`

Find pitch circle diameters and pitch line velocity of the smaller sprocket.

Determine the load (W) on the chain by using the following relation

Calculate the factor of safety by dividing the breaking load (WB) to the load on the chain ( W ).

Fix the centre distance between the sprockets
Centre distance between the sprockets,= 30 p Determine the length of the chain. L = K.p

Pitch circle
It is an imaginary circle which by pure rolling action, would give the same motion as the actual gear.

Addendum:-the radial distance of a tooth from the pitch circle to the top of the tooth. Dedendum:- the radial distance of a tooth from the pitch circle to the bottom of the tooth. Addendum circle. It is the circle drawn through the top of the teeth and is concentric with the pitch circle. Dedendum circle. the circle drawn through the bottom of the teeth. It is also called root circle. Circular pitch. It is the distance measured on the circumference of the pitch circle from a point of one tooth to the corresponding point on the next tooth.

The cast iron is widely used for the manufacture of gears due to its good wearing properties, The phosphor bronze is widely used for worm gears in order to reduce wear of the worms The steel is used for high strength gears

In the design of a gear drive, the following data is usually given : 1. The power to be transmitted. 2. The speed of the driving gear, 3. The speed of the driven gear or the velocity ratio, and 4. The centre distance. The following requirements must be met in the design of a gear drive : (a) The gear teeth should have sufficient strength so that they will not fail under static loading or dynamic loading during normal running conditions. (b) The gear teeth should have wear characteristics so that their life is satisfactory. (c) The use of space and material should be economical. (d) The alignment of the gears and deflections of the shafts must be considered because they effect on the performance of the gears. (e) The lubrication of the gears must be satisfactory.

w = o × Cv where o = Allowable static stress, and Cv = Velocity factor.
The values of the velocity factor (Cv) are given as follows :

`

Dynamic load occurs b/c of
x Inaccuracies of tooth spacing, x Irregularities in tooth profiles x Deflections of teeth under load.
WD = WT + WI WD = Total dynamic load, WT = Steady load due to transmitted torque, and WI = Increment load due to dynamic action.

The increment load (WI) depends upon the pitch line velocity

WD = Total dynamic load in newtons, WT = Steady transmitted load in newtons, v = Pitch line velocity in m/s, b = Face width of gears in mm, and C = A deformation or dynamic factor in N/mm.

K = A factor depending upon the form of the teeth. = 0.107, for 14 1/2 ° full depth involute system. = 0.111, for 20° full depth involute system. = 0.115 for 20° stub system tooth error in action (e) depends upon the pitch line velocity (v) and the class of cut of the gears.

is obtained by Lewis formula by substituting flexural endurance limit or elastic limit stress ( e) in place of permissible working stress ( w).
the values of flexural endurance limit ( e) for different materials are presented in design data books For safety, against tooth breakage, the static tooth load (WS) should be greater than the dynamic load (WD). For steady loads, WS • 1.25 WD For pulsating loads, WS • 1.35 WD For shock loads, WS • 1.5 WD

Ww = DP.b.Q.K where Ww = Maximum or limiting load for wear in newtons, DP = Pitch circle diameter of the pinion in mm, b = Face width of the pinion in mm, Q = Ratio factor

es = Surface endurance limit in MPa or N/mm2, = Pressure angle, EP = Young's modulus for the material of The values of surface endurance limit the pinion in N/mm2, and ( es) are given in the design databooks EG = Young's modulus for the material of the gear in N/mm2. The maximum limiting wear load (Ww) must be greater than the dynamic load (WD).

K = Load-stress factor

Bending failure Pitting:- The failure occurs when the surface contact stresses are higher than the endurance limit of the material. Scoring :-occurs when excessive heat is generated when there is an excessive surface pressure Abrasive wear Corrosive wear

First of all, the design tangential tooth load

WT = Permissible tangential tooth load in newtons, P = Power transmitted in watts, v = Pitch line velocity in m / s D = Pitch circle diameter in metres, N = Speed in r.p.m., and CS = Service factor.

WT = w.b.pc.y = w.b. m.y = ( o.Cv) b. m.y (Q w = o.Cv)
`
The Lewis equation is applied only to the weaker of the two wheels  The product ( w × y) is called strength factor of the gear. ` The face width (b) may be taken as 3 pc to 4 pc (or 9.5 m to 12.5 m) for cut teeth and 2 pc to 3 pc (or 6.5 m to 9.5 m) for cast teeth. Calculate the dynamic load (WD) on the tooth by using Buckingham equation WD = WT + WI

Find the static tooth load
WS = e.b.pc.y = e.b. m.y For safety against breakage, WS should be greater than WD.
