TechBlog #15 | Practice-Oriented Determination of the Longitudinal Load Distribution of Planetary Stages
The goal of increasing the power density of a gear unit demands that extraneous material reserves can be detected and reduced to the necessary level. In this context, it is important to know the influences acting on the gear unit and the resulting loads. Precise knowledge of the longitudinal load distribution in the gear meshes during operation, and specification of suitable microgeometries for its optimization, play a decisive role.
TechBlog #14 | The Influence of Wheel Body Rim Width on Longitudinal Load Distribution
The influence of the wheel body design and the required modification on the longitudinal load distribution are demonstrated, using an example two-stage reduction gearbox as commonly used in electromobility. The influence on the load and pressure distribution are also analyzed.
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.
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.
