A three-dimensional (3D) dynamic gear model is presented which combines classic shaft, lumped parameter, and specific two-node gear elements. The mesh excitation model is based on transmission errors (TEs), and its mathematical grounding is briefly described. The validity of the proposed methodology is assessed for both spur and helical gears by comparison with experimental evidence. The model is then employed to analyze the relationship between dynamic transmission errors (DTE) and dynamic tooth loads (DF) or root stresses. It is shown that a linear dependency can be found as long as the system behavior is dominated by shaft torsion but that this linear relationship tends to disappear when bending cannot be neglected.
