Analysis of stresses in spur gears by the photoelastic coating method

Celik, M
Bilir, OG
This study uses a photoelastic coating method in spur gear stress analysis, and verifications of the results are made with two-dimensional boundary element analysis. The principal advantage of the photoelastic coating method comes from the fact that it is a full-field technique capable of showing the entire stress distribution over the surface of a part and thus highlighting the regions where the stresses are the largest. The general results of experimental work in which spur gears are analyzed, both in test fixtures and in loading conditions at the critical points, are presented in order to measure actual tooth root, tooth fillet, and blank stresses.


Analysis and Elimination of the Capacitive Feedthrough Current on Electrostatically Actuated and Sensed Resonance-Based MEMS Sensors
Kangul, Mustafa; Aydin, Eren; Gokce, Furkan; Zorlu, Ozge; Külah, Haluk (2017-12-01)
This paper presents the investigation of two different capacitive feedthrough current elimination methods with an analysis of the effect of the capacitive feedthrough current on the resonance characteristics of electrostatically actuated and sensed resonant MEMS sensors. Electrostatically actuated and sensed resonators have various applications, such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, mass sensors, and temperature sensors. In most of these applications, as sensitivity increases, gain decreases. The capacitive f...
Evaluation of displacement coefficient method for seismically retrofitted buildings with various ductility capacities
Dicleli, Murat (Wiley, 2014-07-25)
This research study is aimed at evaluating the accuracy of the displacement coefficient method (DCM) of FEMA 440 and associated nonlinear static procedure (NLSP) for actual buildings with soft story mechanism and various ductility capacities. The DCM and associated NLSP are evaluated using two existing seismically vulnerable buildings with soft story mechanism. The buildings are first retrofitted using a ductile steel-brace-link system to represent those with good ductility capacity and then retrofitted wit...
Monitoring variation of surface residual stresses in shot peened steel components by the magnetic Barkhausen noise method
SAVAŞ, SERDAR; Gür, Cemil Hakan (2010-12-01)
Shot peening is a cold working process by which residual compressive stresses are induced in the surface and near-surface region to increase the fatigue strength and the resistance to stress corrosion cracking This study covers non-destructive evaluation of surface residual stresses in the shot peened steel components by the magnetic Barkhausen noise method For this purpose various sets of steel specimens were prepared by a controlled shot peening process with different intensities impact angles and coverag...
Consideration of spatial variation of the friction coefficient in contact mechanics analysis of laterally graded materials
Dağ, Serkan (2016-01-01)
This paper presents a new analytical approach for sliding contact analysis of laterally graded materials, which allows taking into account the spatial variation of the friction coefficient. The method is developed by considering a sliding frictional contact problem between a laterally graded elastic medium and a rigid flat punch. Governing partial differential equations entailing the displacement components are derived in accordance with the theory of plane elasticity. General solutions are determined and b...
Measurement of residual stress in air plasma-sprayed Y2O3-ZrO2 thermal barrier coating system using micro-Raman spectroscopy
Tanaka, Makoto; Hasegawa, Makoto; Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi; Kagawa, Yutaka (2006-03-15)
Residual stress in air plasma-sprayed Y2O3 stabilized ZrO2 thermal barrier coating (TBC) has been measured using micro-Raman spectroscopy. The frequency shift of Raman peak from tetragonal phase (approximate to 640 cm(-1)) is used for determination of local stress in TBC. The relation between Raman peak shift and applied uniaxial stress is measured using a freestanding specimen. The relation is used to determine actual residual stress of the TBC layer coated on a stainless steel substrate. The uniaxial stre...
