Abstract : The objective of the research reported here is to establish an optimal design procedure for spur gear pairs. Standard tooth forms are assumed. Figures show a single mesh of the external type, and show a single mesh of the internal type. The procedure developed in this paper uses standard gear geometry and optimizes the remaining parameters to obtain the most compact standard gearset for a given application of specified speed reduction and input torque. The procedure applies to internal and external gearing.
