Abstract

In this paper, a historical evolution of graphical representation of gear designs is reported as a short survey by using significant drawings bath in the history of gear systems and design standards. A graphical representation of gear systems has evolved from a pictorial illustration towards a synthetic drawing of functionality and characteristics of gears that is today summarised in international standards. Those standards as from ISO and Italian UNI codes are still based on graphical schematic representation of gear characteristics with pictorial representation for an intuitive understanding of an intuitive understanding of main features of gear designs. A historical study is focused on the last century practical application of this gear representative.
