Profile modifications are commonly used to avoid shocks between meshing gear teeth produced by the delay of the driven gear, and the subsequent sooner start of contact, due to the teeth deflections. A suitable tip relief at the driven tooth shifts the start of contact to the proper location at the theoretical inner point of contact. The shape of the relief governs the loading curve of the tooth pair, while the length of relief determines the intervals in which this actual loading curve differs from the theoretical one of unmodified teeth. As at least one tooth pair should be in contact at the unmodified involute profile interval, the length of modification should be smaller than the length of the intervals of two pair tooth contact; otherwise, a shock at the end of contact of the previous pair is unavoidable. However this problem does not occur for high contact ratio spur gears, in which at least two couples of teeth are in contact at any moment. In this work, a study on the load sharing and the quasi-static transmission error for high contact ratio spur gears with long profile modification has been performed, and a model for the tooth contact has been developed.
