Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Volume optimization of a simple planetary gear set
by Deake, Jeremy J., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 75; 1591595
Abstract (Summary)

This thesis describes a custom algorithm developed to optimize a simple planetary gear set. The optimization minimizes volume for one simple planetary gear set using American Gear Manufacturers Association stress equations, custom design constraints, and material constraints. Through predetermined reactions to adjustments, component features and planetary variables are modified systematically to obtain the target solution. This thesis demonstrates that the defined approach is an effective means of balancing all three components of a simple planetary gear set, thus resulting in a solution that has been optimized for volume.
