Answered

Module Learning Outcomes

1) Use calculations to determine forces and torques in friction and positive drive systems, Including epicyclics, in power transmission systems and to balance rotating shafts.

2) Conduct free and forced vibrations of single degree of freedom systems

1a) Why toothed gears are preferred over Rope, Belt, and chain drive? Also specify the application for each drive system. (06 Marks)

b) State law of gearing? What do you understand by the term ‘interference’ as applied to gears? (04 Marks)

c) Two gear wheels with 50 and 30 teeth respectively, mesh externally, the speed of the smaller being 1800 r.p.m. Determine the velocity of sliding between the gear teeth faces at the point of engagement, at the pitch point, and at the point of disengagement if the smaller gear is the driver. Assume that the gear teeth are 18° involute form, addendum length is 8 mm and the module is 5 mm. Also find the angle through which the pinion turns while any pairs of teeth are in contact. (15 Marks)

d) An indexing mechanism of the milling machine uses a gear train shown in figure task 1d. The drive is from gear wheels A and B to the bevel gear wheel D. The following table shows the tooth number on each gear, solve using tabular method.
