The effect of mesh stiffness on the dynamic response of face gear transmission system combining with backlash nonlinearity is studied. First, a nonlinear time-varying (NLTV) and a nonlinear time-invariant (NLTI) dynamic models of face gear transmission system with backlash nonlinearity are formulated. The 6DOF motion equations of the face gear pair considering the mesh stiffness, backlash, contact damping and supporting stiffness are proposed. Second, the effect of mesh stiffness on the dynamic response of the face gear drive system is analyzed with the numerical method, where the mesh stiffness is expressed in two patterns as time-varying form and time-invariant form. According to the comparative study, some significant phenomena as bifurcation, chaos, tooth separation and occurrence of multijump are detected. The results show that different forms of mesh stiffness generate an obvious change on the dynamic mesh force.
