Abstract

The present work is concerned with determining optimum gear ratios of mechanical driven systems using a two-stage helical gearbox with second stage double gear sets and a chain drive. During the research process, the construction of an optimization problem has been implemented. The minimal system cross section area was selected as the objective function. Afterwards, a simulation experiment was conducted with the aim of exploring the dependence of the optimal transmission ratios on the input factors including the total gearbox ratio, the wheel face width coefficient, the allowable contact stress and the output torque. The recommended equations can be applied to obtain the optimal gear ratios.

Keywords
