Approximate formulae are presented which give the time-varying mesh stiffness function for ideal solid spur and helical gears. The corresponding results compare very well with those obtained by using two-dimensional (2D) finite element (FE) models and specific benchmark software codes thus validating the proposed analytical approach. More deviations are reported on average mesh stiffness which, to a large extent, are due to the modeling of gear body deflections.
