|A 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.
