Gears are one of the most crucial parts of power transmission systems in various industrial applications. Recently, there emerged a need to design gear drivers due to the rising performance requirements of various power transmission applications, such as higher load-carrying capacity, higher strength, longer working life, lower cost, and higher velocity. Due to their excellent properties, gears with asymmetric teeth have been designed to obtain better performance in applications. As the rotation speed of the gear transmission increases, the dynamic behavior of the gears has become a subject of growing interest. The most important contributing factor of dynamic behavior is the stiffness of the teeth, which changes constantly throughout the operation. The calculation of gear stiffness is important for determining the load distribution between the gear teeth
