Practice Problem 2-3 | Back | Index | Next |
Given: In a gear train, Gear A drives Gear B. Due to the gear contact, Gear A applies a force of F_{A} = 900 N on Gear B. The gear teeth on both gears are of length L = 25 mm and the bearing angle is f = 14°. Req'd: Determine the maximum bending moment M_{max} in the gear tooth [N·m] assuming the entire length of the gear tooth is the effective length for bending. |
