Abstract

The paper gives a new method for obtaining the geometrical dimensions for cylindrical worm gears based on the conditions of forming a lubrication film between the teeth flanks. Based on this requirement the axial module mx is determined together with other parameters so that the worm gear will have good efficiency while the bearing strength and worm shaft bending conditions are satisfied. Numerical results were obtained for the main parameters using the Matlab programming environment.
