Abstract:

Modification of geometry of spur and helical gears with parallel axes and helical gears with crossed axes is proposed. The finishing process of gear generation is shaving. The purposes of modification of the gear geometry are to localize and stabilize the bearing contact, and to reduce noise and vibration. The goals mentioned above are achieved by using profile crowning and plunging the shaver by a prescribed motion during pinion generation. The pinion becomes double crowned. The gear member is generated as a conventional involute gear. A tooth contact analysis TCA program for simulation of meshing and contact was developed and the analysis is illustrated with TCA results for spur and helical gears.
