Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A new method is proposed for reducing vibration and noise of involute gears. The method is based on the use of cubic spline curves for gear tooth profile modification. The tooth profile is constrained to assume an involute shape during the loaded operation. Thus the new gear profile assures conjugate motion at all points along the line of action. The new profile is found to result in a more uniform static transmission error compared to standard involute profile thereby contributing to the improvement of vibration and noise characteristics of the gear.
