The workshop "Advanced Design, Simulation & Stress Analysis of Gear Drives" will be held for the first time at RIT Campus in Rochester, NY, on June 24-26, 2019. This practical 3-day workshop will bring you up to speed on advanced gear design and simulation utilizing state-of-the-art computational tools for virtual generation of gears and application of tooth contact analysis (TCA) and finite element analysis (FEA). Topics include: application of micro-geometry modifications to avoid edge contact and absorb errors of alignment, free-form design of gear tooth surfaces, evaluation of the loaded function of transmission errors and mesh stiffness as the main cause of noise and vibration during operation, compensation of errors of alignment caused by shaft deflections, and advanced design and simulation of different types of gear drives.
The workshop should be of interest for engineers and qualified technicians involved in the design, analysis, manufacture, or application of gear drives. Industries include automotive, wind-energy, aircraft, general manufacturing, and gear manufacturers. Members of the RIT's Gear Research Consortium can register free of charge! Members of AGMA will have a 10% discount on the individual registration. There are discounts for RIT alumni and employees as well as for a group registration from the same organization.
