Prediction of Mesh Misalignment of External Gear for Transmission

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.19 No.2

Summary

To increase the accuracy of meshing analysis of the external gear of the transmission, attention was focused on mesh misalignment of the gear. A gear in an actual vehicle is supported by a number of parts. An appropriate fitting stiffness was assigned to the point of contact between the gear and each support part, and a misalignment theoretical prediction technology having feasible accuracy and calculation times was constructed using linear analysis. By applying misalignment created using the method described in this paper to gear mesh analysis, it was confirmed that there was good correlation with the actual status of gear tooth flank contact and damage prediction. Also, analysis on the misalignment effect factors and their role in misalignment was possible as well, which made efficient reduction of misalignment possible.
