Refer your students to D. W. Dudley, Gear Handbook, library reference section, for descriptions of heat-treating processes. 15-12 Computer programs will vary. 15-13 A design program would ask the user to make the a priori decisions, as indicated in Sec. 15-5, p. 786, SMED8. The decision set can be organized as follows: A priori decisions • Function: H , K o , rpm, m G , temp., N L , R • Design factor: n d ( S F = n d , S H = √ n d ) • Tooth system: Involute, Straight Teeth, Crowning, φ n • Straddling: K mb • Tooth count: N P ( N G = m G N P ) Design decisions • Pitch and Face: P d , F • Quality number: Q v • Pinion hardness: ( H B ) 1 , ( H B ) 3 • Gear hardness: ( H B ) 2 , ( H B ) 4...
