Course Description

090-Introduction to Gear Technology

Much scientific study and development work has been completed on gears. Formulas have been developed and standards established to make gear design and application as easy an endeavour as possible. The gear tooth has been so successfully perfected that, when two gears mesh, almost perfect rolling takes place. Most gears operate in the high 90% range similar to anti-friction bearings where virtual pure rolling does take place.

This course provides, with ample illustration, established technological information on gears. It has almost as many pages of illustrations as it does text. It starts out with terminology and types of gears. Next the type of material used and the method of manufacture are explained. A sample problem is posed whereby allowable transmitted horsepower formulae for tooth bending and pitting are used to evaluate a simple gearset. The gearset is then revaluated with several design options and the results compared to baseline data. Gear mounting is examined by solving an equation for gear rim design and an equation for shaft size. Finally drawings are presented and expert analysis given for gears in power transmission devices.

This course is written in an effort to make it attractive to Mechanical Engineers or anyone else with a technical discipline that is interested in broadening their background in mechanical power transmission basics. The field is full of opportunities and challenges especially in the aerospace industry where new gear variations have been developed that perform beyond the limits of today's existing designs and the search is on for even better concepts that will deliver even more power with less weight for future generation vehicle use.

Course provides fundamentals of gear design and gearing systems. Would have been helpful to have some components of Figures 9 - 11 labeled. A little rusty on deciphering machine drawings and it took a while to sort out what was what. Would like to see next level course in gears.

Good introductory course. Although not overly complicated, the questions do require you to understand the exact wording. Expect to spend 3 hours reading and preparing for the test if you want the test to go quickly. Working the text sample problem along with the book definitely helped the process. Also, the test provide a method to bringing the primary points into focus.

Course provides familiarization with basic gear terminology and considerations in selecting gearing. A bit more discussion or background on the shape factors employed in the equations would be helpful. On page 4, "diametrical: should be "diametral:
