## Wear strength of the Bevel Gear Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Wear_Strength = (0.75*Face width*Ratio factor*Pitch circle diameter of pinion*Material Constant)/cos(Pitch angle)
Sw = (0.75*b*QBevel*Dp*K)/cos(γ)
This formula uses 1 Functions, 5 Variables
Functions Used
cos - Trigonometric cosine function, cos(Angle)
Variables Used
Face width - Face width is the length of the tooth parallel to the gear axis. (Measured in Millimeter)
Ratio factor- Ratio factor for Bevel Gear is the ratio of a gear tooth to the sum of gear and pinion of gear teeth.
Pitch circle diameter of pinion - Pitch circle diameter of pinion is the diameter of the pinion circle. (Measured in Millimeter)
Material Constant - The material constant is the term used to calculate the wear strength of the gear by using the hardness. (Measured in Newton per Square Meter)
Pitch angle - Pitch angle for Bevel Gear is the angle that the pitch line makes with the axis of the gear, is called the pitch angle. The pitch angle is also called centre angle. (Measured in Degree)
