Optimization of Tooth Bending Fatigue Characteristics of Spur Gear Pairs using a Gear Dynamics based Approach

2015-08-05
A gear tooth profile optimization study is performed with the target being defined as the maximization of tooth bending fatigue life for a selected operational range, where the operating torque and speed ranges are defined along with their corresponding durations. For this purpose, a nonlinear lumped gear dynamics model is combined with the S/N curve of the gear material in order to estimate tooth bending fatigue life of the spur gear pair. The differences between the predicted lives of the optimally modified and non-modified gear pairs are presented based on example spur gear pairs. The proposed tooth bending fatigue life estimation is compared with the standard AGMA procedure.

Vibration Fatigue Analysis of a Cantilever Beam Using Different Fatigue Theories
Eldoğan, Yusuf; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2014-02-11)
In this study, vibration fatigue analysis of a cantilever beam is performed using an in-house numerical code. Finite element model (FEM) of the cantilever beam verified by tests is used for the analysis. Several vibration fatigue theories are used to obtain fatigue life of the cantilever beam for white noise random input and the results obtained are compared with each other. Fatigue life calculations are repeated for different damping ratios and the effect of damping ratio is studied. Moreover, using strain...
Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis of a Spiral Bevel Geared System
Yavuz, Siar Deniz; Saribay, Zihni Burcay; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2017-02-02)
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 stiffne...
Accuracy of a manual torque application device for morse-taper implants: A technical note
CEHRELI, Murat Cavit; AKCA, Kıvanç; Tönük, Ergin (2004-09-01)
Purpose: The objective of this study was to compare torques applied by new and used manual torque devices for Morse-taper implants. Material and Methods: Fifteen ITI manual torque devices were tested. Those in group 1 (n = 5) were new (ie, never used), those in group 2 (n = 5) had been used 50 to 200 times, and those in group 3 (n = 5) had been used 500 to 1,000 times. The torques applied by each device were measured for 35 Ncm and 15 Ncm targets in an experimental setup by a custom-made wrench with strain ...
Simulation of glow discharge plasmas by using parallel particle in cell / monte carlo collision method : the effects of number of super particles used in the simulations
Erden, Emrah; Çetinkaya, Tahsin Ali; Rafatov, İsmail; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2013)
Mechanical amplification is achieved using a multi-flexure-hinge based compliant mechanism, due to limited displacement range of piezoactuator. In the design stage of mechanism, a comparison matrix analysis is performed to decide the best alternative among the possible compliant mechanism candidates. The mechanical design parameters of the displacement amplifier is determined optimally using the analytical equation derived using Pseudo Rigid Body Model, and the static analysis is performed using finite elem...
