Investigations on Gear Tooth Surface and Bulk Temperatures using ANSYS

In gears, the temperature at the conjunction zone between the meshing tooth faces governs the imminent scuffing failure. Failure due to high tooth temperatures can be prevented with the knowledge of temperature distribution in gear teeth under operation. In this work, the prediction of bulk and surface temperatures of the gear tooth is carried out using finite element method, using ANSYS. The investigations are carried out on the tooth of the worm wheel of different sizes of single reduction worm gear boxes under various operating conditions
