Estimation and Reduction of Noise in Gears

Authors(3) :-Shubham Dhokale, Dr. Sanjay Bahulikar, Vishal Hemke

The paper presents the literature for noise in gears. It includes the methods of calculation of gear noise, mathematical modeling for gear noise prediction. Also experimental methods to measure noise parameters. It is mainly divided into three parts “Causes of Noise”, “Mathematical modeling”, “Noise measurement”. Mathematical models consisting of gear noise prediction is useful in order to design gear box with less noise. Noise and vibration measurement and signal analysis are important tools when experimentally investigating gear noise gears create noise at specific frequencies, related to number of teeth and the rotational speed of the gear.
