ABSTRACT-

To achieve improved static gear drives and enhanced load carrying capacity and reliability, a complete study about gear drive design and analysis is carried out. The structural analysis is examined for spur gear drive. Gear drives transmit motion and power by tooth mesh mostly in the form of involute profiles, gear tooth mesh is a complex process involving multi tooth engagement, multipoint contact and varying load conditions. The contact stresses were examined using 3-D FEM model. The gears are modeled by using AUTO- CAD and analyzed by ANSYS 16.0. In the present work an attempt is proposed to find the structural analysis at the point of gear tooth engagement under static loading conditions through finite element software.

 

Key words: Spur gear, CAD, ANSYS, Static analysis, Total deformation, FEM.
