Department of Mechanical Engineering, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH. Offered for gear designers and noise specialists who encounter gear noise and transmission design problems. Attendees will learn how top design gears to minimize the major excitations of gear noise: transmission error, dynamic friction and shuttling forces. Fundamentals of gear noise generation and gear noise measurement will be covered along with topics on gear rattle, transmission dynamics and housing acoustics. Course includes extensive demonstrations of specialized gear analysis software in addition to the demonstrations of Ohio State gear test rigs. An interactive workshop session invites attendees to discuss specific gear and transmission noise concerns. $1,550.
