 Finite Strips

The HyGEARS "Finite Strips" are a 2D subset of the Finite Element Analysis. The Finite Strips calculate tooth deformation and bending stresses instantly without having to resort to an external solver, a real time saver.

The Finite Strips provide a user friendly interface to :

  • bending stress analysis;
  • tooth deformation;
  • typical CPU times (meshing and solving) are less than 0.1 second
  • meshing is done automatically, without any user intervention.
  • Finite Strips offer a precision comparable to that of Finite Elements, without the complexity of FEA.

Result output include :

  • tooth bending deformations,
  • principle stresses in X and Y directions,
  • shear stresses in X and Y directions,
  • Von-Mises stresses.

The figure to the right shows the deformation of a hypoid gear tooth under load. Load is applied to a user-selected instant line of contact on  the Bearing Pattern.
