Polymer S-Gears conversion model

Project duration: 01.05.2023 - 01.05.2024

A model for the conversion of polymer gears with a progressively curved path of contact, i.e. S-gears.It includes a temperature control calculation and fatigue control. Fatigue control includes root and flank load carrying capacity calculation. The influence of the specific tooth shape on the root and flank strength is taken into account with shape factors, which were defined by employing a series of numerical simulations. The load capacity calculation model is complemented with influential factors, which takes into account the effect of pitch and lead deviation on the stress state of the gear.
