Hypoid and Bevel Gear Mesh and Dynamic Modeling Consortium


  • To develop gear mesh representations that will enable dynamic models to be formulated for simulating the vibration response of the driveline systems.
  • To perform studies of the modal and dynamic characteristics controlling mesh force generation, vibration transmissibility, and gear whine.
  • To develop an integrated gear mesh and dynamic modeling and analysis software package (HGSim).
  • To apply the simulation software package for design, analysis and trouble-shooting.
  • To develop a design roadmap for quiet gears.



  • Free access to HGSim software package
  • Attend project review meetings twice per year
  • Interact with researcher and industry peers
  • Receive reports, papers and thesis/dissertations
  • Opportunities for technology transfer
  • Develop joint research project to enhance member’s internal capabilities
  • Stay abreast with new developments
