The history of gears with asymmetric teeth is not sufficiently recorded in modern gear literature, with some researchers concluding that asymmetric tooth gears were discovered just several decades ago.
This book sheds light upon the origins and state of asymmetric gearing, referencing technical articles from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. As a practicing gear engineer with over 40 years’ experience, author Alexander L. Kapelevich has successfully implemented asymmetric gears in a variety of custom gear transmissions.
Asymmetric Gearing addresses all aspects of development, including theoretical fundamentals; tooth geometry optimization; stress analysis and rating; design and production specifics; analytical and experimental comparison to the best symmetric gears; and application examples.
Look beyond the status quo established by traditional gear design, and apply principles of Direct Gear Design® to asymmetric gear design. Optimal solutions are presented for gear drives that will maximize technical performance and marketability.
“Alexander Kapelevich has written a treatise that is destined to be the classic work on asymmetric gearing.”
