Abstract : This investigation developed two computer programs which allow the determination of the tooth profile coordinates, together with the associated Lewis gear strength and AGMA geometry factors, for all types of involute gears including fuze gears. These two programs differ only in the manner in which the root portion of the teeth is obtained. The origins of the involute and trochoid coordinate expressions and of all programming schemes are discussed in detail. Sample runs and operating instructions are provided.
