involute cylindrical gear Hertz formula contact analysis program development
To facilitate the contact analysis of involute cylindrical gears, a meshing contact analysis and tooth profile modification algorithm program for involute cylindrical gears is designed. The involute spur gear parameter equation is employed to accurately model the radius of curvature of the tooth profile contact point, and the Hertz contact formula is enhanced to solve the gear meshing contact stress considering the actual load. To reduce the impact of gear meshing, five tooth profile modification methods and their contact stress analysis methods after modification are given in the algorithm program. Compared with the calculations by MASTA, the industry-recognized gear design simulation software, the algorithm program has a higher accuracy in solving the contact stress and the contact stress distribution after tooth profile modification accords with the MASTA calculation results, and the average error is about 5.04%, which confirms the rationality of the algorithm program.
