GEAR PAIR GENERATION WITH THE METHOD OF TRANSPOSED LINES OF ACTION
The most typical way to calculate geometry of changing ratio gears is based on the manufacturing process. This article however describes a different approach. We applied the basic law of gearing, and generated the teeth geometry using the lines of action. These lines are escorted along the pitch curves with the help of different coordinate transformations. The connection points are registered on the gears coordinate system, resulting the curves of the teeth profile. This method is a fast and reliable way to determine general gear geometries.
