KISSsoft supports the user with numerous calculations for different machine elements. The new KISSdesign module in KISSsoft supports the combination of these machine elements in building complex system transmissions containing any number of shafts, gears, and bearings.
All rotating machine elements contain several characteristic frequencies, which can be one of the potential sources of noise in the transmissions. For example, gear meshing creates vibrations in its meshing frequency due to transmission error, manufacturing deviations, stiffness variation, torque fluctuations, as well as other sources. Therefore, knowledge of the characteristics and frequencies of the transmission can lead to an improved design and contribute to improved diagnostics of an existing transmissions.
During a webinar on November 15, 2023, various possibilities for the calculation of system characteristic frequencies, including gear and bearing frequencies, are presented.
