Simulation of the 3d Model of Worm Gear Using Finite Element Analysis

  • 1. Dean School of Engineering VISTAS Chennai


The manufacturing of the exact geometry of the worm gear toothing is a complicated issue since the flank surface
of the worm gear tooth is a curved surface explicitly indefinable [5]. The accurate geometry of the toothing can be
obtained by running the manufacturing simulation application written in Auto Lisp. However, the obtained 3D
model shows a flank surface of the tooth which consists of several small surfaces irregularly positioned and sized.
To facilitate the FEM analysis using this 3D model is necessary to clean the obtained tooth groove and the flank
surfaces. This work deals with the machining of the accurate 3D tooth profile and the reshaping of the 3D model of
the worm gear without impacting the accuracy of the obtained geometry
