Gear design simplified! The THORS course, Spur and Helical Gear Design Fundamentals provides strategies for designing gears that meet given application requirements. This course, complemented with real-life examples, delves into the principles of selection and optimization of primary and secondary design variables.
- To understand the application and gear design input parameters.
- To estimate the gear design basic variables based on design inputs.
- To design a gear pair that satisfies the specifications of the intended application.
- To design a gear pair that meets or exceeds target design life and safety factor ratings.
- To improve safety factor ratings by optimizing gear geometry and material selection and heat treatment.
