Considering the elastic deformation of the rotor and the periodic change of the mesh teeth pair number, the calculation equations of the load distribution for the toroidal drive are presented. Based on the equations, the formulas for calculation of the contact stresses among stator and worm are introduced. By using the above-mentioned formulas, the contact stress distributions for the drive are obtained. The optimal parameters providing for equal contact strength of the stator and worm are determined. These results are useful in manufacture and design of the drive.
