Abstract : A complete analysis of spiral bevel gear sets is presented. The gear profile is described by the movements of the cutting tools. The contact patterns of the rigid bodygears are investigated. The tooth dynamic force is studied by combining the effects of variable teeth meshing stiffness, speed, damping and bearing stiffness. The lubrication performance is also accomplished by including the effects of the lubricant viscosity, ambient temperature and gear speed. A set of numerical results is also presented. (Author)
