A Design of a gear tooth profile using curve
In power transmission system gear is a key component which finds numerous applications in engineering sectors. A new design concept is presented in this paper using free form curve in view of reduction in bending stress and deflection. On the variation of face width and speed, the designed tooth profile is tested for bending stress as well as deflection. The results obtained from the test are satisfactory and effective from previous one.
