helical gear contact line simulation

Question asked by Nadav Silverman on Apr 18, 2018



I need to simulate the meshing of helical gears and see if a certain defect (chipping of one tooth for example) effects the contact line. i know that there's an option to look at the contact forces, but i'm more interested in looking at the contact itself. I'm adding a figure from an article which shows the contact line in color. i'd like to be able to produce the same thing only as an animation, and be able to change the tooth profile and see the influence.


Thanks in advance,
