Contact analysis of asymmetric gears

KISSsoft now also offers contact analysis for asymmetric gears according to Langheinrich’s dissertation (module ZA38). This enables, in addition to geometry and strength evaluation, the analysis of asymmetric teeth under load.

Deformation components such as bending, gear body deformation, Hertzian flattening, shaft deflection and bearing deformation are included in the calculation, which can be used for optimizing various gear features such as noise, efficiency, contact temperature and root stress with specifically selected micro-modifications. Furthermore, the contact analysis in KISSsoft Release 2019 now enables runout errors to be taken into account. The evaluation is enhanced by graphics for iterative wear, LTCA, active diameter under load and much more.
