Advanced Gear Design and Theory
Explore manufacturing methods and considerations, inspection and quality control, materials and heat treatment, drawing data requirements, specifications, basics of load capacity rating and lubrication types and methods. With a strong emphasis on the proper selection, design application and use, rather than fabrication, designers, users and beginning gear technologists can all benefit from the curriculum.
Benefits and Learning Outcomes
- Further your understanding of the manufacturing processes that may be used to bring design concepts to reality
- Create drawings that convey full, complete and unambiguous definitions of gears
- Learn the basic methods of analysis for each of the major design factors (wear, scoring, strength and durability)
A knowledge of geometry, trigonometry, and elementary algebra is required. Basic strength of materials is helpful but not essential.
