Abstract : An approach is proposed for computerized simulation of meshing of aligned and misaligned involute helical gears. Algorithms for TCA (Tooth Contact Analysis) computer programs were developed. Influence of misalignment on the shift of the bearing contact and transmission errors has been investigated. Numerical examples that illustrate the developed theory are provided.
