A nonlinear dynamic model of a spiral bevel gear train mounted on flexible shafts and bearings is proposed in this study. The finite element model of shafts is combined with a three-dimensional discrete mesh model of a spiral bevel gear pair. Bearing flexibilities are as well included in the model. Gear backlash is incorporated into the model in the form of clearance-type displacement functions and clearance nonlinearity and stiffness fluctuations of the bearings are neglected. A time-invariant mesh stiffness is assumed for the gear pair to simplify the dynamic model. Eigenvalue solution is used to predict the natural modes of the system. A multi-term Harmonic Balance Method (HBM) is employed for the solution of resulting equations of motion for periodic steady-state response. The results of HBM are validated by comparing them to the solutions obtained by direct numerical integration. Forced response of the system in the form of dynamic mesh force is studied to demonstrate the effects of static mesh force and backlash amount.

The nonlinear dynamics of a multi-mesh spur gear train is considered in this study. The gear train consists of three spur gears, with one of the gears in mesh with the other two. Dynamic model includes gear backlash in the form of clearance-type displacement functions and time variation of gear mesh stiffness. The system is reduced to a two-degree-of-freedom definite model by using the relative gear mesh displacements as the coordinates. The equations of motion are solved for periodic steady-state response ...

In this paper, a nonlinear time-varying dynamic model of a drivetrain composed of a spiral bevel gear pair, shafts and bearings is developed. Gear shafts are modeled by utilizing Timoshenko beam finite elements, and the mesh model of a spiral bevel gear pair is used to couple them. The dynamic model includes the flexibilities of shaft bearings as well. Gear backlash and time variation of mesh stiffness are incorporated into the dynamic model. Clearance nonlinearity of bearings is assumed to be negligible, w...
