Advanced root stress analysis for thin-rimmed gears
RomaxDESIGNER’s advanced Finite Element numerical analysis tool for assessing gear bending strength accounting for gear rim distortion, specifically for thin rim gears or highly loaded gears has been further extended to include additional capability and enhancements.
Improved meshing of root stress model resulting in faster solve time without compromising on accuracy.
New Multi mesh root stress analysis capability
Inclusion of Thermal expansion and Centrifugal effects on root stress
Automation and optimisation of gear geometry and root stress mesh now possible with Design of Experiments and Batch process
Gears can now be specified as being milled (non generated) allowing greater flexibility over root geometry
No third-party Finite Element tools or expertise required
Romax Gleason Data Exchange Interface
Data exchange between RomaxDESIGNER and Gleason GEMS enhances the design process by leveraging the strength of full drivetrain system analysis in RomaxDESIGNER and GEMS’ detailed analysis of bevel and hypoid gears, ultimately leading to increased durability, efficiency and improved NVH characteristics.
Bevel and hypoid gear geometry from GEMS can be imported into RomaxDESIGNER
Load case data and accurate predictions of misalignments from RomaxDESIGNER can be imported into GEMS to be used in the detailed contact analysis
Transmission error and stress results from GEMS can be loaded into RomaxDESIGNER for viewing and for use in the NVH analysis
The accurate misalignment information from RomaxDESIGNER allows for better and more detailed optimisation of gears in Gleason GEMS for increased durability and efficiency
The transmission error calculated in GEMS can be used as an excitation in RomaxDESIGNER, enhancing the accuracy of NVH predictions
