scope:

This standard provides an acceptable practice for the design and selection of components for enclosed gear drives. Fundamental equations provide for the proper sizing of shafts, keys, and fasteners based on stated allowable stresses. Other components are discussed in a manner to provide an awareness of their function or specific requirements. This standard applies to the following types of commercial and industrial enclosed gear drives, individually or in combination: spur, helical, herringbone, double helical, or bevel gearing in single or multiple stages. Bevel gear drives may include shaft angles other than 90 degrees.

Exceptions

The equations in this standard are not applicable when gear drives are subjected to conditions that introduce vibrations of a sufficient level to affect the performance of the gear drive and may result in unpredictable fatigue failure.

The procedure for design or selection of the specific gear components is varied and complex and is beyond the scope of this standard. Designers must refer to the specific rating or enclosed drive standards for this aspect of drive design.

intended Use:

The equations and values presented provide a general approach to design. Deviations from the methods and values stated in this standard may be made when justified by experience, testing, or more... View More
