Abstract

The analytical method of gear design is calculation-intensive and it is usually difficult to achieve optimum backlash and interference-free involute profile that are required to generate geometrical compatibility in a pair of meshing gears when design procedure is entirely based on this method. Some amount of backlash is often required in the assembly of gears but excess backlash can lead to increase vibration and wear of the gear assembly. Also, interference-risk profile can result in undercutting of gear tooth. This paper optimized a spur external involute-profile gear by developing an application for the modeling of its geometrical compatibility using Matlab®. The application uses existing models to test for interference and a proposed model to determine effective backlash in a gear. The backlash values resulting from the application are more confined and the model is applicable to a wider range of modules suggested by American Gear Manufacturers Association. Simulation of the gear-set in Solidworks® for kinematic geometry presents an interference-free tooth contour and an effective backlash.
