Research output: Journal PublicationArticlepeer-review


This study presents a finite element-based analysis of the compliance, contact stress distribution and dynamical response of a gear transmission, where the typically rigid shaft of the large gear is replaced by a thin-walled hollow shaft equivalent. Quasi-static analysis is used for the compliance and stress calculation and eigenfrequency analysis is used to determine the dependency of eigenfrequencies and related eigenmodes on the hollow shaft thickness.
