I need help creating a thesis and an outline on The Gear System. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. A gear is a standard device that is used in the transmission of power in engineering. It is an essential component in the running of automobiles and machinery (Uicker 67). A geared system includes any system that is toothed and designed for transmission or receiving of motion using straight engaged teeth. The wheel is called the larger wheel, whereas the pinion is referred to as a smaller gear. Gear is used in engineering situations. It facilitates the rotational speed, transmission of power (torque), and output and input shaft direction. More precise gear specifications occur in a gear ratio whereby the ratio of the number of hearing teeth driving gears to the numbers of hearing teeth on the driven gear could be more or less than one. If the ratio’s value is more than one, this will lead to a reduced driving rotational speed, and in cases where it is less than one, it could give an increased rate. This experiment seeks to study different gear arrangements, and some uses of the gear system.
Automotive gear is a gear system that is used in the automotive industry (Uicker 92). This gear gives out a high torque and converts the mechanical energy in a smooth and noiseless way. Turbine gears, on the other hand, are used in the minimization of power and noise. . Worm gears are gears used in the driving of the tooth wheel rim positioned on the turbines bearing.
The objectives set for this experiment were to study different arrangements of gears, including worm gearboxes, automobile gearboxes, and turbine reduction gearboxes.
The critical specification of the parameters of the gears includes the number of the gears teeth (z), the circular pitch diameter of the equipment (d), and the module (m). Therefore, the module, m, can be given by the following equation. m= d/z, d is the path diameter that could transmit equal motion as that of the actual gear by a pure rolling. The gear ratio or the torque ratio can also be termed as the mechanical advantage. For a basic gear train that has two gears, input gear drives output gear.
