Determination of surface temperature rise with thermo-elastic analysis of spur gears

Taburdagitan, Murat
Akkök, Metin
The tooth surface temperature rise during meshing spur gear pair due to frictional heat is investigated. A coupled thermo-elastic analysis is carried out by considering the elastic deformation of teeth and corresponding load shearing between the contacting tooth pairs and heat generation in the contact. In the analysis, gear pairs with contact ratio between one and two are considered and pinion and gear are modeled only with three teeth. The finite element analysis is performed using quadrilateral 4-node plane-strain elements. The analysis is focused on the contact surfaces so that relatively fine mesh is used for contacting involute teeth profiles. Constant rotation is applied on the pinion and the gear is resisted with a constant torque by a torsional spring. The load sharing between the pairs in contact along the pressure line is determined by elastic contact analysis. The sliding velocity and contact pressure is calculated for each node in the contact area and the frictional heat is evaluated by assuming a constant coefficient of friction. The convection heat transfer coefficient on tooth surfaces in the lubricated conditions based on experimental studies is also included in the solution. The effects of involute tooth profile modifications on temperature rise are also investigated. The results of the surface temperature rise obtained by coupled thermo-elastic contact analysis and analytical calculations are compared with the experimental results in the literature. Finally, it is observed that the surface temperature rises on spur gear teeth pair along the pressure line are highest at the very beginning of the meshing and the surface temperatures at the initial contacts can be decreased by profile modification at the tip of the tooth.


Analysis of Transient Laminar Forced Convection of Nanofluids in Circular Channels
Sert, İsmail Ozan; Sezer Uzol, Nilay; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Kakaç, Sadık (2012-11-15)
In this study, forced convection heat transfer Characteristics of nanofluids are investigated by numerical analysis of incompressible transient laminar flow in a circular duct under step change in wall temperature and wall heat flux. The thermal responses of the system are obtained by solving energy equation under both transient and steady-state conditions for hydrodynamically fully developed flow. In the analyses, temperature dependent thermo-physical properties are also considered. In the numerical analys...
Determining the optimal parameters for the MHD flow and heat transfer with variable viscosity and Hall effect
EVCİN, CANSU; Uğur, Ömür; Tezer, Münevver (2018-09-15)
The direct and optimal control solution of the laminar, fully developed, steady MHD flow of an incompressible, electrically conducting fluid in a duct is considered together with the heat transfer. The flow is driven by a constant pressure gradient and an external uniform magnetic field. The fluid viscosity is temperature dependent varying exponentially and the Hall effect, viscous and Joule dissipations are taken into consideration. The control problem is solved by the discretize-then-optimize approach usi...
Evaluation of latent heat of solidification of grey cast iron from cooling curves
Çetin, Asude; Kalkanlı, Ali (2005-01-01)
The temperature history in the casting obtained from cooling curves can be used to determine some information related to latent heat release during alloy solidification. This work presents a procedure for the evaluation of latent heat of primary and eutectic solidification of grey cast iron from cooling curves based upon the Newtonian cooling principle. The thermal data obtained from quik-cups are processed with the Mathcad code in order to obtain the cooling curve, its first and second derivatives and the ...
Determination of the influence of TiO2 on the elastic properties of a mica based glass ceramic by ultrasonic velocity measurements
Gür, Cemil Hakan; Öztürk, Abdullah (Elsevier BV, 2005-11-15)
The influence of small amount (1 or 2 wt%) of TiO2 additions and crystallization heat treatment on the elastic properties of a mica based glass ceramic have been investigated by ultrasonic velocity measurements. The mica based glass ceramic was prepared through controlled crystallization of a glass in the SiO2, Al2O3, CaO, MgO, K2O and F system. Evidences of TiO2 acting as a nucleating agent in this system was demonstrated. The longitudinal and transversal wave velocities of the as-prepared glass and the mi...

Cora, Oe N.; Akkök, Metin; Darendeliler, Haluk (2008-11-01)
In metal forming operations, the friction between die and workpiece is a complex phenomenon and has a strong influence on the metal forming parameters and the product quality This study aims to investigate the effect of friction in cold forging operations using different friction models. In the analyses, the forging operations are simulated using the Coulomb and constant friction models, and the results are compared with the simulation results obtained by using the variable friction models developed by Wanh...
