Fundamentals of Gear Design and Analysis- October 24-26, 2018
Gain a solid and fundamental understanding of gear geometry, types and arrangements, and design principles. Starting with the basic definitions of gears, conjugate motion, and the Laws of Gearing, learn the tools needed to understand the inter-relation and coordinated motion operating within gear pairs and multi-gear trains. Basic gear system design process and gear measurement and inspection techniques will also be explained. In addition, the fundamentals of understanding the step-wise process of working through the iterative design process required to generate a gear pair will be reviewed. Learn the steps and issues involved in design refinement and some manufacturing considerations. An explanation of basic gear measurement techniques, how measurement equipment and test machines implement these techniques, and how to interpret the results from these basic measurements will also be covered. 2.0 CEUs

Hybrid Forging: Advances in Open Die and Closed Die Forging for the Gear Industry1.50 credits offered Recorded On: 12/07/2017
This webinar intends to demonstrate how, using the advantages of open die forging combined with the near-net shape capability of closed die forging, the forging process can be tailored to optimize time and cost savings for the gearing industry.
Gearbox Field Inspections4.50 credits offered
This is a three-part series that includes webinars on Load Distribution, Condition Monitoring, and Lubrication. Part I: Gears can fail due to various damage patterns. In this study, the combined influence of shaft misalignments and gear lead crown on load distribution and tooth bending stresses is applied to real world circumstances. Part II: Both the operator and designer must consider gear tribology. In this second part of our series, the focus will be placed on lubrication. Part III: Gearbox diagnostics and service are critical to the field inspection process. In this third part of our series, instructors will explore these concepts in depth.
Metallurgy of Gear Materials1.50 credits offered
In this webinar Dr. Terry will cover the details of the metallurgy of heat treatment of gear steels and in particular through- hardened/quenched and tempered and carburized gears. The metallurgical mechanisms which develop the properties necessary to carry gear tooth loads will be examined and the load carrying capability of the various material options will be explained. Metallurgical characteristics specific to gear steels will be explored.
Design and Development Procedure for High-Precision Molded Plastic Gear Transmissions1.50 credits offered
This session will discuss high-precision molded plastic gear transmission design and development.
Analytical Gear Chart Interpretation1.50 credits offered
This is a two part webinar series. Part one is an introduction to the methodology of analytical gear inspection and the evaluation and interpretation of the resulting data. The application of this information to identify and correct manufacturing errors will begin to be explored. In part two, this webinar reviews chart interpretation and applies inspection data to understand the causes and cures of manufacturing errors. Many chart examples are used to understand cause and effect.
Gear Microgeometry Based Load Distribution for Gear Noise, Dynamics and Design Assessments1.50 credits offered
This webinar will demonstrate techniques for using the gear microgeometry to minimize noise excitations and also to evaluate the gear contact stresses, bending stresses and tribological factors such as film thickness and flash temperature. The gear pair used in this study is the high speed ratio of the NREL-GRC wind turbine gearbox. In addition to the load distribution analysis, we shall explore ways of using load distribution analysis to come up with new macrogeometries that perform as well or better than the original design. Finally, a simple dynamic analysis of the gear set will be performed to observe the response of various natural frequencies to a transmission error excitation.
