Loads Acting on Gears and Bearings
This chapter deals with the calculations of loads acting on helical gears and bearings used in transmission systems for the automotive industry. The gear loads depend only on the gear geometries and the driving torque on the shaft. As a result, the loads on the bearings result from the gear loads and the setup geometries. The loads on the bearings change with the operating conditions, such as forwards and backwards driving cycles, and recuperation phase.
