Abstract

Gears are referred to as solids of revolution s when engaged with other components or otherwise referred to as thick cylinders. In this study analytical technique was employed to determine the radial stress and hoop stress experienced by a spur gear tooth in a food packaging machine during operation, by studying the machine failure rate for a period of 12 months to determine the rate of failure in a year. The study also revealed a validated result of hoop stress and radial stress by varying the temperature distributions across the gear tooth during the modeling and simulations, the result was analysis with Matlab (R2007b). Finally, a comparison of the nonlinearity in temperature variations in the two stresses revealed that the impact of the hoop stress on the gear was higher compared to the radial stress.
