This paper presents a method for the determination of bending stress minimization of involute spur gears. A computer program has been developed to investigate the variation of bending stress and contact ratio depending on the pressure angle on the drive side. Since asymmetric tooth is not standard, the tooth model, which was introduced by DIN 3990/Method C and ISO/TC 60, has been adjusted for asymmetric tooth by the authors. The determination of the tooth form and stress concentration factors for asymmetric tooth has been accomplished for each different parameter (pressure angles, tool radius, rack shift, etc.). The sample results, which were obtained by using a developed computer program, are illustrated with numerical examples. Copyright © 2005 by ASME.
