A method for the analysis of epicyclic gearboxes 2000-05-0127
The analysis of epicyclic gearboxes starts from the Kinematic
diagram and the number of teeth (or the constants of epicyclic
train) and has as results the angular speeds and the torsion for
each component element as well as the ratios of the gearbox and the
The method consists of the transformation of the Kinematic
diagram using a symbolic description of the elements and the links
The equations describing the speeds correlation and the
distribution of torsion are used in order to build up the matrices
of coefficients, which permit the determination of the angular
speeds and the torsion for each component element.
The values calculated as it is mentioned above are used for the
calculation of power flows.
The method permits an extended use of the computer resulting in
a shorter time dedicated to the analysis process. The method is
useful for comparative evaluation of various solutions of epicyclic
