Abstract : The objective of this project was to develop an interactive computer program providing flexibility in the design and analysis of marine propulsion gears. The program, Reduction Gear Analysis and Design (REGAD), will handle conventinal parallel axis and simple epicyclic reduction gears. It is capable of generating preliminary designs of new gear sets or of providing analyses of existing or proposed gear sets. Program development, organization, and operation are discussed.
