Abstract:

An integrated tooth contact analysis TCA computer program for the simulation of meshing and contact of gear drives that calculates transmission errors and shift of hearing contact for misaligned gear drives has been developed. The computer program combines numerical solutions for the problems above and their graphical interpretation. The program is applicable for various gear drives but requires derivation of tooth surface equations for each gear drive type. The computer program represents a set of integrated operations such as the development of required algorithms database storage copying, deleting printing and design correction from the database. The computer program uses the Java programming language. An example for a spiral bevel gear drive is presented.
