This book presents papers from the International Gear Conference 2014, held in Lyon, 26th-28th August 2014. Mechanical transmission components such as gears, rolling element bearings, CVTs, belts and chains are present in every industrial sector and over recent years, increasing competitive pressure and environmental concerns have provided an impetus for cleaner, more efficient and quieter units. Moreover, the emergence of relatively new applications such as wind turbines, hybrid transmissions and jet engines has led to even more severe constraints. The main objective of this conference is to provide a forum for the most recent advances, addressing the challenges in modern mechanical transmissions. The conference proceedings address all aspects of gear and power transmission technology and range of applications (aerospace, automotive, wind turbine, and others) including topical issues such as power losses and efficiency, gear vibrations and noise, lubrication, contact failures, tribo-dynamics and nano transmissions.
- A truly international contribution with more than 120 papers from all over the world
- A judicious balance between fundamental research and industrial concerns
- Participation of the most respected international experts in the field of gearing
- A wide range of applications in terms of size, power, speed, and industrial sector
