Analysis of chaos in systems with gears

Jarosław Dyk, Andrzej Krupa, Jerzy Osiński
The aim of this paper is investigation of a chaos phenomenon in complex models of gears that describe dynamics of toothing precisely (e.g. the Miiller model). An analysis was carried out for the case of isolated gear system. A study of the results has shown, that chaos can be observed in system with gears, provided that the parameters of the model differ from those existing in real constructions. It can be seen that chaos should not appear in practice in systems with gears – particulary in structures designed according to the industrial standards (e.g. ISO or DIN).
