Concept of Synthesis of a Gear Pair with Prescribed Performance

Synthesis of a gear pair with a prescribed performance begins with the determination of the tooth anks that have the most favorable geometry for some given conditions of operation. It should be noted from the very beginning that the restriction on the relative motion of the tooth anks of a gear and its mating pinion (just two rotations, ωg and ωp) imposes a very strong constraint on the feasible geometry of interacting tooth anks of the gear, G, and its mating pinion, P , as well as on the entire problem of gear pair synthesis.
