Spur gear is cylindrical shaped gear in which the teeth are parallel to the axis. It is easy to manufacture and it is mostly used in transmitting power from one shaft to another shaft up to certain distance & also used to vary the speed & Torque. The cost of replacement of spur gear is very high and also the system down time is one of the effect in which these gears are part of system. Failure of gear causes breakdown of system which runs with help of gear. When gear is subjected to load, high stresses developed at the root of the teeth, Due to these high stresses, possibility of fatigue failure at the root of teeth of spur gear increases. There is higher chance of fatigue failure at these locations. So to avoid fatigue failure of the gear, the stresses should be minimized at maximum stress concentrated area. Design of spur gear can be improved by improving the quality of material, improving surface hardness by heat treatment, surface finishing methods. Apart from this stress also occurs during its actual working. Hence it is important to minimize the stresses. These stresses can be minimized by introducing stress relief features at stress zone. Many simulation packages are available for checking the different values of stresses. Simulation is doesn’t give exact results but gives a brief idea where stresses are induced. Hence experimental stress analysis method can also be adopted for studying stresses.
