The design of a pair of gears given geometric constraints, power transmission requirements and other factors is an iterative process that can be time consuming if done by hand; however, much of the work may be automated. A new design algorithm has been developed based on computational techniques which significantly automate and improve the design process. One feature of the algorithm is that it is entirely based on procedures and standards recommended by the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA). A computer program implementing this new algorithm has been developed to assist in the gear design procedure. The program, written in FORTRAN, is interactive and may be run on most personal computers.
