GEARCALC is extremely user friendly and simple to run. It requires a minimum of input data and prompts the user to input the application, load, material, and heat treatment data for a gearset. GEARCALC designs maximum-capacity gearsets that have minimum volume and weight. Profile shift coefficients can be selected to maximize pitting and wear resistance, scuffing resistance, or bending strength.
Context explanations are dynamically presented to clarify the input and provide help for the inexperienced user. Results are presented as soon as available. A graphical presentation of the sized pair of gears gives visual feed back along with an extensive report that illustrates the sizing process.
