Project Objectives: Understand rack and pinion gear mechanism. Come up with an innovative solution for building that design as a standard one. Determine the various forces that are meshed within gears. In context of all the gear parameters referring to right selection of material for rack and as well as for pinion.

Need Need is to develop a system for closing and opening of railway crossing gate with rack and pinion mechanism. In order to design that we will have to assume some data as shown: Gate is to slide on a rail by rail and wheel mechanism. Sliding path is frictionless. Two rack and pinion gears are used to slide gate on rail as load will uniformly be distributed mounted on its ends.

Rack and Pinion Gear Design

Rack & Pinion Gear A rack and pinion gears system is composed of two gears. The normal round gear is the pinion gear and the straight or flat gear is the rack. The rack has teeth cut into it and they mesh with the teeth of the pinion gear..

Preliminary Design For spur gear design, pinion and rack both have straight teeth or spur geometry of teeth. So for we will first consider the design of pinion as spur gear.

Spur Gear Design and Selection Objectives

Calculate forces on teeth of spur gears, including impact forces associated with velocity and clearances. Determine allowable force on gear teeth, including the factors necessary due to angle of involute of tooth shape and materials selected for gears. Understand how lubrication can cushion the impact on gearing systems and cool them.

Specifications for standard Gear Teeth

Forces on Spur Gear Teeth Ft = Transmitted force Fn = Normal force. Fr = Resultant force = pressure angle Fn = Ft tan Fr = Ft/Cos

Forces on Spur Gear TeethPower, P; =

Torque,

Combining the above we can write:

Surface Speed Surface speed (Vm) is often referred to as pitch-line speed:

Strength of Gear Teeth Lewis form factor methodLewis equation

Fs = Allowable dynamic bending force (lb)

Sn = Allowable stress. Use endurance limit and account for the fillet as the stress concentration factor b = Face width (in.) Y = Lewis form factor (From Table) Pd = Diametral pitch

Classes of Gears Transmitted load depends on the accuracy of the gears Gear Manufacture Casting Machining Forming Hobbing Shaping and Planing Forming

Force Transmitted Transmitted load depends on the accuracy of the gears. A dynamic load factor is added to take care of this. Ft = Transmitted force Fd = Dynamic force Commercial

Classes of Gears Carefully cut

Precision

Hobbed or shaved

Expected error in tooth profiles

Design Methods Strength of gear tooth should be greater than the dynamic force; Fs Fd You should also include the factor of safety, Nsf.

Service Factors

www.postointernational.tk

Face width of Gears Relation between the width of gears and the diametral pitch.

www.postointernational.tk

Dynamic Beam Strength of the Gear To increase the dynamic beam strength of the gear Increase tooth size by decreasing the diametral pitch Increase face width upto the pitch diameter of the pinion Select material of greater endurance limit Machine tooth profiles more precisely Use proper lubricant and reduce contamination

www.postointernational.tk

Buckingham Method of Gear Design It offers greater flexibility. Expected error is based on different-pitch teeth. More conservative design.

www.postointernational.tk

Wear strength (Buckingham)

Fw = tooth wear strength. Dp = diametral pitch of pinion. Dg = diametral pitch of gear. b = face width. Kg = load stress factor.

Conclusion So far we have been able to calculate the design of pinion only in the next phase of project we will be designing the rack. Passed on fundamental knowledge of rack and pinion gear mechanism and it design procedure & finally selecting the right material for it.
