This paper firstly presents a mathematical model in order to calculate the load distribution, single contact stiffness and meshing stiffness as well as transmission error. in this way, there is no need to use finite element like methods and also the calculation time is dramatically reduced. Presented method is based on definition of a statically undetermined problem that is formulated using energy method. Some assumptions considered to convert this problem to a statically determined problem and get the mathematical models. Then a numerical method is employed in order to solve the mathematical model using a double iteration flowchart to close the problem. This model is flexible to adapt for any modification in spur gear profile geometry. Finally, this model is verified using previous works that have been utilized finite element and experimental model.
