Abstract

Asymmetric gear teeth are used to improve the performance of gears by increasing the load capacity or by reducing vibrations. Recently these types of gears have found application in MEMS devices where the use of gears is on the rise. In this research a probabilistic computer program, in conjunction with a commercially available finite element program, is developed and the reliability of the asymmetric gear tooth is studied. Specifically, the probability of failure of the asymmetric gear is extracted for various parameters. The parameters considered included pressure angle, tooth height, and contact ratio. The efficacy of using asymmetric gear tooth is shown in this study.
