Helical Gear Calculations

Helical Gear Calculations

Helical Gear Calculations

I plan to make my own automotive transmission and I would like to find some helical gear calculations like the lateral force. Any help will be appreciated, I would like to find them on the internet.

Thank you.

RE: Helical Gear Calculations

I have been doing just this over the last few months.  

I have not found them on the Internet but:

Shigley & Miscke (the stable of the ME) has everything you need on page 562 and 563

RE: Helical Gear Calculations

Interesting.  If you have any pictures I'd love to see them.
I'll look for Shigley & Miscke in the library. Is that the title?


RE: Helical Gear Calculations

Have a look at the free programs on my site - email me when you decide which you want - the gear loads are calculated at the end

RE: Helical Gear Calculations

Whilst this is not of immediate use, I can recommend a 3 volume book set called "Revised Manual of Gear Design" to anyone seriously into the subject.  They are spiral bound volumes from the 1980's and although some of the work is a little dated (like maths tables) and in Imperial, there is still an awful lot of information - calculations and sketches - much more than the Mischke/Shigley books.  One volume is dedicated to helical and spiral gears alone.  The set is still available, I bought my last year from a UK bookshop new, and they cost 45UKP which I didnt think was bad.  The books are written by E & EK Buckingham of Buckingham Associates Inc Gear Consultants, Parker Hill Road, Springfield, Vt 05156.
