Advanced Forming Research Centre

Advanced Forming Research Centre Inchinnan Drive Renfrew PA4 9LJ

The Gears 2017 Annual Technical Awareness Seminar, hosted by the British Gear Association will take place 15th November 2017 and is the leading conference for the Gear industry in the UK. GEARS brings together industry leaders, providing the ultimate platform to discuss all aspects of power transmission technology, commercial interests and the future of manufacture within the UK.

This year, Dr Sharad Jain, Lead Researcher – Dynamics & Simulation, of Romax Technology, will present a paper titled;

"A simulation approach to calculate gear dynamic-factors for high-speed applications”

In order to design durable gears for high-speed applications, it is crucial to understand the influence of dynamic loads on gear fatigue life. One commonly used method to consider the effect of dynamic loads on gear life is to multiply the static stress by a dynamic factor. Standards-based calculations of gear dynamic factors, however, has some limitations. Therefore, there is a need for a reliable method to predict gear dynamic factors accurately. In this paper, Dr Sharad Jain proposes a simulation approach to calculate the dynamic factors for high-speed gears. He also investigates the influence of system resonances, model fidelity, torque and speed on dynamic factors. The findings from this paper will hopefully help engineers to design more reliable gears for high-speed applications.

Meet with Romax technical experts during the show to discuss your current design and analysis challenges and see how Romax can support you.
