Homogeneous Geometry Calculation of Arbitrary Tooth Shapes: Mathematical Approach and Practical Applications
February 1, 2016
This paper provides a mathematical framework and its implementation for calculating the tooth geometry of
arbitrary gear types, based on the basic law of gear kinematics. The rack or gear geometry can be generated
in two different ways: by calculating the conjugate geometry and the line of contact of a gear to the given
geometric shape of a known geometry (e.g., a cutting hob), or by prescribing the surface of action of two gears in contact and calculating the correspondent flank shapes.
