Abstract

A visual basic developed program, EHgear, for sizing, stress and strength analysis of the full depth teeth, standard helical gears is described. The Design basis is on the American Gear Manufacturer’s Association (AGMA) recommended standard. Test and validation of the program through numerical examples with typical helical gear operational parameters is shown.
