Cylindrical Gear Contact Analysis and Gear Optimization

The objective of the 3-day training is to understand the fundamental theories for cylindrical gear design and analysis and to learn the application usages of KISSsoft. Participants will gain knowledge on how to interpret the gear rating, analyze reports and apply the software to improve gear design from the conceptual to the final design phase.

The training is designed for engineers who are already familiar with cylindrical gear calculations and basic functionalities of KISSsoft. If a participant has a lack of knowledge on gears or KISSsoft usages and user interface, we highly recommend going through the KISSsoft tutorials posted on our website before the training.


The training starts with the geometric definitions and properties, manufacturing and inspection techniques of cylindrical gears.
The second day explores the contact analysis regarding tooth load and stress, stiffness, transmission error, vibration and noise, and other important results under actual operating conditions.
The last day focuses on how to apply the knowledge built in the previous days on gear design and optimization. Strategies to achieve optimal gear design in various criteria will be explored by using KISSsoft sizing functionalities.

The full schedule is provided in the training program.



You will need a notebook to actively participate in the training course.
