Forces and Moments on Bevel Gears

Application ID: 36261

This tutorial model simulates a pair of straight conical bevel gears. The gears are modeled as rigid, but one of the gears is fixed while the other is hinged on a rigid bar. The rigid bar is also hinged at a point lying on the axis of the fixed gear. A transient analysis is performed to compute the forces and moments at the center of the fixed gear. The results of the analysis are compared with the results of a reference from an international journal.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
