Development and validation of a dynamic model for a two-stage speed-reducer
Stellenbosch University, South Africa
This paper presents the development and validation of a six degree of freedom (DOF) dynamic model of a two-stage parallel shaft gearbox, without flaws, which is able to determine the reaction of gearbox components to varying torque inputs and loads. The model utilises flexible shafts and gears rather than using a rigid assumption, to further understand the effect of varying mesh stiffness. The paper replicates the results presented by Diehl and Tang, and improves the number of frequencies that can be analysed. The gear meshing frequencies were expected to dominate the result, however due to the use of a sinusoidal approximation of the varying tooth mesh frequency, the presented model shows the additional gear generated frequencies are present and analysable in the data.
