Study of the Modeling of the Gear Dynamics Considering Mesh Stiffness and Sliding Friction
Time- varying mesh stiffness and sliding friction between teeth are the great excitation for vibration and noise in gears system. But, there are rarely studies on this topic. This paper proposes a new dynamic modeling of gear system, which is effect of mesh stiffness variation, sliding friction and distribution of load. Firstly, the expression of time-varying mesh stiffness is gained, which is a period function. Secondly, a new friction modeling has the same period as mesh stiffness, is proposed. Thirdly, friction torque of each gear pair is calculated respectively, which is considering the distribution of load and time-varying friction arm. Finally, because all parameter have the same cycle, it is easy to get the approximate analytical solution to non-line model of gear dynamic by fourier transform.
