Calculation of the Geometric Factor Using the Plate Formula for Bevel Gears with a Back Shoulder
Bevel gears with a back shoulder are considered to be stronger than straight through machined gears, in part, because of the excess web of material between the teeth. This strength has been theoretically shown to be significantly greater than similar conventional bevel gears. The equation derived for predicting the strength of the gears involves a geometric factor which is tabulated for different gear sizes. Its use in the design of this type of bevel gears is explained via an example problem.
