FEM, Python, design, testing.


The study presents the creation process and the effects of the calculation script for the bevel gear. The designed script has been prepared with the Python language editor program within the Abaqus software, applying the finite element method (FEM) for the calculations [6, 7]. Its mission is to significantly improve the process of design and testing of the implemented product. Therefore it allows to shorten the manufacturing process and to improve the quality of the product. The prepared script works in such a way, that after importing properly prepared cogged wheel models from any CAD software, the entire process of defining and carrying out the calculations, as well as presentations of selected results is made automatically. This is particularly important in the case of the analysis comprising a large number of models of similar construction.
