Rampilla, Lokamanya Siva ManoharA FINITE ELEMENT APPROACH TO STRESS ANALYSIS OF FACE GEARS
Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Cleveland State University, 2012, Fenn College of Engineering
Face Gears have alternative gear-teeth configuration compared to Bevel Gears. Face Gear have a standard spur pinion as opposed to a bevel Gear. This work concentrates on modeling of a Face-gear, Meshed with a spur gear, using CAD Software and Finite Elements Analysis. The bending stress developed at the gear teeth is determined. Numerical results are validated using the bending stress developed between two involute spur gears.

Marambedu, Karthikeyan RameshDEVELOPMENT OF A PROCEDURE FOR THE ANALYSIS OF LOAD DISTRIBUTION, STRESSES AND TRANSMISSION ERROR OF STRAIGHT BEVEL GEARS
Master of Science, The Ohio State University, 2009, Mechanical Engineering
The thesis aims to develop a procedure for the creating of geometry and analysis of straight bevel gears. The gear geometry is generated from standard AGMA equations that use Tregold’s approximation to create planar involute teeth. Contact lines are based on the rolling action of the pitch cones and a finite element model is used to compute the compliance of the straight bevel gear pair. The program analyzes the gear pair for the transmission error and the load distribution and may be used to evaluate the contact stresses. The effect of the microgeometry modifications on the model is studied to optimize the contact pattern and noise excitations. The program results are compared with the results from the finite element gear analysis software, CALYX.
