Material Influence on Gear Strength

May 11, 2021

Material definitions prove to be fundamentally complex: In the standards for strength calculations for gears, numerous influences - such as residual austenite content, hardening depth, residual stresses, hardening processes and others - cannot be directly assessed. It is therefore particularly important for the design engineer to identify these influences and their possible effects.

In KISSsoft, many effects can be mapped directly or indirectly - our software thus offers analysis and optimization options that go beyond the standards.

Our detailed documentation explains some of the aspects mentioned above and how they are implemented in KISSsoft. Do you have any additional points? If so, please contact us - we incorporate suggestions and requests from customers as well as prospects into our software development.
