spur gear; computer simulation; nonparallel axes; contact forces


The purpose of this work is to analyze the effect of gears with nonparallel axes on the dynamics and loading of gear parts. It was created the algorithm for gear drives modeling considering their non-parallel axes in the MSC.ADAMS package. Simulation demonstrated that the values of the dynamic forces acting the structural parts with constant loading depend on the angle between the shafts axes. The reasons for the high-frequency noise at the gear operation were explained. The results can become a basis for improving the gear drives design, both in terms of improving their reliability and noise reducing.
