Abstract

The coupled translation-rotation vibratory response of hypoid geared rotor system due to loaded transmission error excitation is studied by employing a generalized 3-dimensional dynamic model. The formulation includes the effects of backlash nonlinearity as well as time-dependent mesh position and line-of-action vectors. Its mesh coupling is derived from a quasi-static, 3-dimensional, loaded tooth contact analysis model that accounts for the precise gear geometry and profile modifications. The numerical simulations show significant tooth separation and occurrence of multi-jump phenomenon in the predicted response spectra under certain lightly loaded operating conditions. Also, resonant modes contributing to the response spectra are identified, and cases with super-harmonics are illustrated. The computational results are then analyzed to quantify the extent of non-illustrated. The computational results are then analyzed to quantify the extent of non-linear and time-varying factors.
