Advanced software tool for modelling and simulation of new gearings
by Laszlo Dudas
International Journal of Design Engineering (IJDE), Vol. 3, No. 3, 2010

Abstract: The paper introduces the latest results achieved using the surface constructor computer programme, which is intended for accomplishing gear investigations, development and innovation. The first part introduces the reaching model conjugate surface generating theory as the core of the kinematical modelling and simulation software application. Then a short description summarises the structure and the capabilities of the tool. Finally, concrete examples demonstrate the versatility of the application in modelling the meshing of gears. The introduced cases are special grinding wheel generation, double modified worm gearing, generating gear pairs by an intermediary generating surface like hypoid bevel gear pair and a novel worm gearing type characterised by continuous meshing in a point.
