Mathematical model of modified straight bevel gear

mathematical model of involute straight bevel gear

As shown in the figure, the tooth root rounding must be in accordance with the tooth root circle and spherical involute.The teeth of the line are tangent.

Define the modification amount using a binary quadratic polynomial:

Wherein, a1 is the tooth thickness modification coefficient;a2 is the helical angle modification coefficient;a3 isPressure angle modification coefficient;a4 is the modification coefficient of the diagonal of the tooth surface;a5 is the modification coefficient of the toothLong direction modification coefficient;a6 is the tooth profile direction modification coefficient;x is along the centerThe distance in the tooth length direction of the point;y is the distance in the tooth shape direction along the center point.Considering only the tooth length and tooth profile modification, the coefficients a5 and a6 can be expressed as:

Wherein, Pini is the starting point of meshing, andPend is the ending point of meshing.

The author combines the discrete points of the modified tooth surface with the spline surface to generateThe new tooth surface equation R(u,v) is shown in the figure.

contact analysis

The schematic diagram of the contact analysis of the modified straight bevel gear is shown in the figure.

According to the gear meshing principle, conjugate contact between two tooth surfaces requires compliance with the three principles ofThen: 1) the contact points have a common normal vector;2) the velocity vector is perpendicular to the normal vector;3) the position vector is perpendicular to the velocity vector.The vectors are equal.

tangent collinearity

Suppose the small wheel rotates by an angle of gek (g) and the large wheel rotates by an angle of gek (g)After rotating the uy angle, the conjugate contact of the two gears is obtained according to equation In the first equation, we obtain the following expression:

Load contact feature calculation

According to the Hertz contact theory, when conjugate contact occurs, the load is distributed between the teethThe surface undergoes elastic deformation, forming an elliptical contact area, as shown in the figure.

The visual curvature is defined as the angle between the tangent plane at a point and the normal to the tangent plane at the same point.The function on the unit circle of the heart.From the compactness of the circle, it can be seen that k mustThe maximum and minimum values can be taken as the principal curvature of the surface, corresponding toThe direction is called the main direction.The main curvature at a point on the surface is the curvature of this pointExtremes of rate.

When in a multi-tooth meshing state, the external total load is distributed between the multi-tooth pairsThe contact characteristics exhibit time-varying characteristics with the meshing cycle.Therefore,Solving the contact characteristics of multi-tooth meshing requires load distribution coefficients.The straight bevel gear after forming is a variable section tooth profile.Due to the deformation of the gear teeth,It is difficult to perform overall calculations, so the author uses the idea of infinitesimal elements to analyze the gear toothSlice processing.The schematic diagram of gear tooth slice is shown in the figure.

In the figure, d b is the width of the tooth, which is divided along the back cone into straight teethThe teeth of the bevel gear can be equivalent to a series of parallel segmented teeth.According to the theory of elastic deformation, the author equates each tooth to a spring modelThe type is shown in the figure.In the figure, it is assumed that the gear tooth slice is divided and equivalent to N elasticIf the spring is deformed, the equivalent stiffness of each spring is dK, and the cumulative integralThe potential energy method, the tooth stiffness can be expressed as:

According to the theory of beam deformation, the author equates each tooth to a cantilever beam modelType, as shown in the figure.

Method validation and result analysis

Using the quasi-static calculation method, the finite element analysis of the gear pair was carried out.In each incremental step, the contact stress in the contact area is the highest.The large point is the initial contact point, and the maximum contact in each incremental step shouldThe line connecting the force points is the meshing line.The author used the loading contact characteristic calculation method and finite element method to solve the problemThe comparison diagram of the meshing line is shown in Figure .

From the figure, it can be seen that the calculation results of the two methods are the same,To show that the author can use spline surfaces and gear meshing principles toConduct contact analysis on the modified straight bevel gear to obtain the contact points.and the contact trace during the entire meshing process.The author obtained the following results using the loading contact characteristic calculation method and finite element methodThe maximum contact stress pma xen is compared as shown in the figure.

From the figure, it can be seen that the calculation results of the two methods are close, andThe change trend is consistent.When the torque is 100 Nm, the load contact characteristics are used to calculate theThe contact force F, the length of the semi-axis a,The results of b and maximum contact stress pmax are shown in Table .When the torque is 150 Nm, the calculation method using the loading contact characteristics is adopted.The contact force F, the length of the long and short semi-axes a,The results of the maximum contact stress pmax are shown in Table .From Table and Table , it can be seen that under different external loads,Under the condition of constant load, accurate calculation results can be obtained by using both methods;among them,The contact force error is guaranteed to be within 1%, and the maximum contact stress error is guaranteed to bewithin 2%.The contact characteristics obtained by using the loading contact calculation method and the finite element method are compared with the experimental results.The cloud map of contact stress distribution is shown in the figure.

The results of the above comparison indicate that using the loading contact characteristic calculation method,can effectively analyze the loading contact of modified straight bevel gears, andaccurately extract its contact characteristics.Due to the fact that the tooth surface is represented by a spline surface, the authorIn the sequence, the contact characteristics are characterized in the u and v reference planes.In order to more intuitively represent the tooth profile shape of the tooth surface, the penThe researchers will consider converting the eigenvalues to the axis section in the follow-up study.
