The thesis mainly deals with the finite element analysis of deformation on spur gear teeth by applying static load on teeth. the feasibility of the project is investigated and the results of the FEM analyses from ANSYS are presented.  

Gears are the most common means of transmitting power in mechanical engineering. With the moving wheel of science and technology the use of gears has become more common in all the upcoming industries. The application of these gears fled from tiny wrist watches to huge machinery Equipments. Gears from vital elements of mechanisms in many machines such as vehicles, metal tooling machine tools, rolling mills, hoisting and transmitting machinery, marine engines, and the like. Toothed gears are used to change the speed, power, and direction between an input and output shaft. Gearing is one of the most critical components in a mechanical power transmission system, and in most industrial rotating machinery. It is possible that gears will predominate as the most effective means of transmitting power in future machines due to their high degree of reliability and compactness. In addition, the rapid shift in the industry from heavy industries such as shipbuilding to industries such as automobile manufacture and office automation tools will necessitate a refined application of gear technology.  Parallel and co-planer shaft connected by gears are called spur gear. Spur gear have straight teeth and are parallel to the axis of the wheel. Spur gears are the most common type of gears. The advantages of spur gear is their simplicity in design, economy of manufacture and maintenance, and absence of end thrust. gear is a component with in a transmission device that transmits rotational torque by applying a force to the teeth of another gear or device. A gear is different from a pulley in that a gear is a round wheel that has linkages (“teeth” or “cogs”) that mesh with other gear teeth, allowing force to be fully transferred without slippage.
