Based on a few specific cases, this paper presents a comparative investigation of the effect of helix slope and form deviation tolerances as specified by grades 5 and 7 of the ANSI/AGMA ISO 1328-1 Standard for Cylindrical Gears. In addition, the consequences of longitudinal flank crowning and radial tip relief modifications are investigated, as applied on a misaligned helical gear set. For all simulations, the express model (Guilbault et al., 2005, ASME J. Mech. Des., 127(6), pp. 1161–1172) is employed. The bending deflection and fillet stresses are obtained from a combination of finite strip and finite difference meshes. The rolling-sliding motion of mating gear teeth is modeled with a cell discretization of the contact area, which offers fast and accurate results. Similar contact conditions arise from a helix slope deviation or a misalignment of the gear set: the first contact point is driven to a theoretical contact line endpoint. Such a condition produces a localized, and clearly impaired, contact area subject to overloading. Consequently, flank crowning and tip relief corrections must be carefully regarded in the design process. The presented results highlight that, if improperly combined, profile modifications can amplify the overloading condition.
