Gear train

  1. 1. LOGOABDUL AHAD ( 1
  2. 2. “ Sometimes, two or more gearsare made to mesh with each otherto transmit power from one shaftto another. Such a combination iscalled gear train or train oftoothed wheels. ” 2
  3. 3. 1 Simple gear train2 Compound gear train3 Reverted gear train4 Epicyclic gear train 3
  4. 4. Simple Gear train:When there is only one gear on each shaft, then it is known assimple gear train. 4
  5. 5. Speed ratio speed ratio (or velocity ratio) of gear train is the ratio of the speed of the driver to the speed of the driven or follower ratio of speeds of any pair of gears in mesh is the inverse of their number of teethTrain value ratio of the speed of the driven or follower to the speed of the driver is known as train value of the gear train 5
  6. 6. When the distance between the two gears is large and we need Constant velocity ratio: The motion from one gear to another, in such a case, may be transmitted by either of the following two methods 1. By providing the large sized gear 2. By providing one or more intermediate gears. The first method (i.e. providing large sized gears) is very inconvenientand uneconomical method whereas the latter method (i.e. providing one or more intermediategear) is very convenient and economical. 6
  7. 7. Intermediate gearsintermediate gears are called idle gears, as they do not effectthe speed ratio or train value of the system.1. To connect gears where a large centre distance is required2. To obtain the desired direction of motion of the driven gear (i.e. clockwise or anticlockwise). 7
  8. 8. when the number of intermediate gears are odd, the motionof both the gears (i.e. driver and driven or follower) is like.if the number of intermediate gears are even, the motion of thedriven or follower will be in the opposite direction of the driver 8
  9. 9. The speed ratio of the simple gear trainSince the driving gear 1 is in mesh with the intermediate gear 2,the intermediate gear 2 is in mesh with the driven gear3 The speed ratio of the gear train 9
  10. 10. The speed ratio of the simple gear train 10
  11. 11. 2. Compound Gear Train When there are more than one gear on a shaft , then the gear train is called a compound train of gear.speed ratio of compound gear train 11
  12. 12. 12
  13. 13. The advantage of a compound train over a simple gear train much larger speed reduction from the first shaft to the lastshaft can be obtained with small gears. If a simple gear train is used to give a large speed reduction,the last gear has to be very large. Usually for a speed reduction in excess of 7 to 1, a simple train is not used and a compound train or worm gearing is employed. 13
  14. 14. 3.Reverted Gear Train When the axes of the first gear (i.e. first driver) and the last gear (i.e. last driven or follower) are co-axial, then the gear train is known as reverted gear train. in a reverted gear train, the motion of the first gear and the last gear is like.From figure: 14
  15. 15. 4. Epicyclic Gear Train In epicyclic gear trains, the axes of the shafts on which the gears are mounted may move relative to a fixed axis.A simple epicyclic gear train is shown in figure:where gear A and the arm C have a common axis at O1 about which they can rotate. The gear B meshes with gear A and has its axis on the arm at O2, about which the gear B can rotate. 15
  16. 16. Epicyclic Motion If the arm is fixed, the gear train is simple and gear A can drive gear B or vice- versa but if gear A is fixed and the arm is rotated about the axis of gear A (i.e. O1), then the gear B is forced to rotate upon and around gear A. Such a motion is called epicyclic and the gear trains arranged in such a manner that one or more of their members move upon and around another member areThe epicyclic gear trains may be simple or compound. 16
  17. 17. Application of Epicyclic gear trainsThe epicyclic gear trains are useful for transmitting high velocity ratioswith gears of moderate size in a comparatively lesser space.The epicyclic gear trains are used in the back gear of lathe, differentialgears of the automobiles, hoists, pulley blocks, wrist watches etc 17
  18. 18. Velocity Ratios of Epicyclic Gear TrainThere are two methods of finding out the velocity ratios of epicyclicgear trains1. Tabular method,2. Algebraic method. 18
  19. 19. 1. Tabular method, 19
  20. 20. First row of the tableFirst of all, let us suppose that the arm is fixed. Therefore the axes ofboth the gears are also fixed relative to each other.When the gear A makes one revolution anticlockwise, the gear B willmake TA / TB revolutions, clockwiseAssuming the anticlockwise rotation as positive and clockwise asnegative, we may say that when gear A makes + 1 revolution, then the gear B will make (– TA / TB) revolutions 20
  21. 21. second row of the tableSecondly, if the gear A makes + x revolutions, then the gearB will make – x × TA / TB revolutions.This statement is entered in the second row of the table. In otherwords, multiply the each motion (entered in the first row) by xThird row of the tableThirdly, each element of an epicyclic train is given + y revolutions andentered in the third row.4th row of the tableThe motion of each element of the gear train is added up andentered in the fourth row. 21
  22. 22. Lecture : 02 2. Algebraic methodIn this method, the motion of each elementof the epicyclic train relative to the arm isset down in the form of equations. The number of equations depends upon the number of elements in the gear train. The two conditions are, usually, supplied in any epicyclic train Some element is fixed The other has specified motionThese two conditions are sufficient to solve all the equations 22
  23. 23. Algebraic methodspeed of the gear A relative to the arm Cspeed of the gear B relative to the arm CSince the gears A and B are meshing directly, therefore they willrevolve in opposite directions.Let the arm C be fixed in an epicyclic gear train therefore its speed, NC = 0If the gear A is fixed, then NA = 0. 23
  24. 24. Example 13.4In an epicyclic gear train, an arm carries two gears A and B having36 and 45 teeth respectively.(1) If the arm rotates at 150 rpm in the anticlockwise direction about the centre of the gear A which is fixed. determine the speed of gear B.(2) If the gear A instead of being fixed, makes 300 rpm. in the clockwise direction, what will be the speed of gear B ? 24
  25. 25. Solution:GivenFirst of all prepare the table of motions as given below : 25
  26. 26. (1) Speed of gear B when gear A is fixed speed of arm is 150 rpm anticlockwise Nc =150 rpm 26
  27. 27. (2) Speed of gear B when gear A makes 300 rpm. clockwiseSince the gear A makes 300 rpm clockwise, therefore 27
  28. 28. 2. Algebraic methodSpeed of gear B when gear A is fixed 28
  29. 29. Speed of gear B when gear A makes 300 rpm clockwise 29
  30. 30. Example 13.5In a reverted epicyclic gear train, the arm A carries two gears B and Cand a compound gear D - E.The gear B meshes with gear Eand the gear C meshes with gear D.The number of teeth on gears B, C and D are 75, 30 and 90respectively.Find:The speed and direction of gear C when gear B is fixed and the arm Amakes 100 rpm. clockwise. 30
  31. 31. From the geometry of the figure:Since the number of teeth on each gear for the same module, areproportional to their pitch circle diameters, therefore 31
  32. 32. The table of motions is drawn as follows :Since the gear B is fixed, y – 0.6 x = 0 32
  33. 33. Speed of gear C 33
  34. 34. Compound Epicyclic Gear Train (Sun and Planet Gear)The gear at the centre is called the sun gear and the gears whose axes moveare called planet gears. 34
  35. 35. A compound epicyclic gear train is shown in Figure.It consists of : two co-axial shafts S1 and S2, an annulus gear A which is fixed, the compound gear (or planet gear) B-C, the sun gear D and the arm H.The annulus gear has internal teeth and the compound gear is carried by thearm and revolves freely on a pin of the arm H.The sun gear is co-axial with the annulus gear and the arm but independentof them. 35
  36. 36. The annulus gear A meshes with the gear Band the sun gear D meshes with the gear C.It may be noted that when the annulus gear is fixed, the sun gearprovides the driveand when the sun gear is fixed, the annulus gear provides the drive.In both cases, the arm acts as a follower. 36
  37. 37. If the annulus gear A is rotated through one revolution anticlockwisewith the arm fixedThen theCompound gear rotates through TA / TB revolutions in the samesense Since, NB / NA = TB / TA NA = 1 NB = TB / TAand the sun gear D rotates through TA / TB × TC / TD revolutions inclockwise direction. NB / NA ×ND / NC = TA / TB × TC / TD Since NB = NC and NA = 1 Therefore, ND = TA / TB × TC / TD 37
  38. 38. A little consideration will show that: when the arm is fixed and the sun gear D is turned anticlockwise, Then the compound gear B-C and the annulus gear A will rotate in the clockwise direction.The motion of rotations of the various elements are shown in the table below. 38
  39. 39. Example 13.7An epicyclic train of gears is arranged as shown in FigureHow many revolutions does the arm, to which the pinions B andC are attached, make :1. when A makes one revolution clockwise and D makes half a revolution anticlockwise, and2. when A makes one revolution clockwise and D is stationary ? The number of teeth on the gears A and D are 40 and 90 respectively. 39
  40. 40. First of all, let us find the number of teeth on gears B and C(i.e. TB and TC). 40
  41. 41. 1. Speed of arm, when A makes 1 revolution clockwise and D makes half revolution anticlockwise:Since, the gear A makes 1 revolution clockwise, therefore ..(1)Also, the gear D makes half revolution anticlockwise, therefore From equations (i) and (ii) ..(2) 41
  42. 42. 2. Speed of arm when A makes 1 revolution clockwise and D isstationarySince the gear A makes 1 revolution clockwise, therefore ..(3)Also the gear D is stationary, therefore From equations (iii) and (iv), ..(3) 42
