Title: A New Method in Curvature Calculation of the Conjugate Gear Surfaces in 3-D Meshing
Author(s): Huran Liu               

Abstract: This paper improved and simplified the deduction and calculation of the curvature of the conjugate gear surfaces in three dimensional meshing. The new method presented in this paper is characterized by the connection calculation with drawing and the simplicity in adopted mathematical tools, avoiding the difficult concept of “dyad”, and may be useful for the popularization of the theories of gear meshing.

Keywords: curvature, gear, meshing, conjugation.
