The fundamentals of gear design and an appreciation of the flexibility of the involute system with its ability to accommodate arbitrary centre distance and ratio using only standard tooth forms are essential knowledge for those concerned with gearing. As this is still less widely understood than might be expected, even by some already in the industry and the topics are neglected in much engineering education, there is a continuing need for a specialist post-experience course giving clear explanations.
Participants will need to bring their own scientific calculators.
This course is intended to give a basic understanding of gear geometry and design procedures. A brief introduction to manufacture is included, as is metrology and tolerancing. Gear load capacity will be considered mainly by reference to existing design standards including ISO 6336, and gauging dimensions will also reference British and International Standards.
