What is it about?

The concentric torque-split face gear transmission is mainly developed for the rotorcraft which demands high power density and large speed reduction ratio. Experimental studies on the load sharing behaviours of the concentric torque-split face gear transmission have been done by Robert. Nevertheless, we still need a simple method other than experiment to investigate the load sharing behaviours of the concentric torque-split face gear transmission.

Why is it important?

The concentric torque-split face gear transmission has promising use in the rotorcraft which keep seeking ways to transmit high power through the lowest weight. The gear sizes of the concentric torque-split face gear transmission are decreased by the torque splitting of the face gears and idlers. The transmission system provides an inherent capability to handle high transmission ratio for the geometry of the face gears. The unique characteristics enable its effective application on the rotorcraft transmission.
