PRODUCT SHOWCASE: New Evaluations in the KISSsoft Contact Analysis
January 17, 2017
The contact analysis is used for further noise and strength optimization. Based on the determination of tooth stiffness according to Weber/Banaschek, the local contact is calculated considering the tooth bending. The shaft deformations and tooth corrections are also included, which allows a realistic analysis of the tooth meshing. In addition to the stress distribution and transmission error, the results also include a local lubrication gap, local wear, and many other criteria.
In the calculation of the face load factor of the KISSsoft Release 03/2016, the mounting deviations can be split into proportional and constant components. Consequently, the diagrams of bending under load are more accurate, for example, if a constant displacement of bearing due to the housing tolerances is taken into account. Furthermore, a graphic has been added to the modifications sizing function. This graphic makes it possible to perform the evaluation with three parameters to produce a quick and transparent summary of profile/tooth trace modifications.
