Vibrations can be detected as noise, and may also lead to component fatigue and cost-intensive damage. These undesirable effects can already be avoided in the design phase by analyzing and optimizing the excitation behavior of the gearbox.
TechBlog #3 | FE Shaft Calculations with the FVA-Workbench
Not all bodies can be analytically described with sufficient accuracy. For this reason, casings, planet carriers, wheel bodies, and shafts in particular are considered using finite element analysis in the FVA-Workbench.
Free exchange format for gearbox data: REXS Version 1.3 offers a number of enhancements for various gearbox machine elements. A total of 19 feature and change requests from industrial companies and CAE tools developers have been implemented.
TechBlog #4 | The Influence of Bevel Pinion Retractability on Casing Design
Bevel gear stages influence casing design. The pinion must be capable of being inserted into the bevel gear stage. The ability of the pinion to be pulled out of the contact can be calculated in the FVA-Workbench.
