Design Guide for Vehicle Spur and Helical Gears
|Publication Date:||6 February 2020|
This standard provides information on the design of spur and helical vehicle power transmission gears. Included are considerations for design, material and heat treatment, lubrication, determination of load capacity, mounting features, and typical design problems.
In determining load capacity, the knowledge and judgment required to evaluate the various rating factors come from years of accumulated experience in designing, manufacturing, and operating gear units. This standard is intended for use by the experienced gear designer, capable of selecting reasonable values for the rating factors. It is not intended for use by the engineering public at large.
Vehicle gearing is defined as: "Steel drive line components of self-propelled, wheeled or non-wheeled vehicles; for transportation, recreational or industrial use. Propulsion of these vehicles should be a primary function of its power source, and its mobility not confined to the constraints of a closely defined area."
