Hypoid Gear

The bevel gear with axial offset is used to be called “hyperbolic gear”.

Hypoid Gear

These gears are also known as “hypoid gears” or “quasi-hyperbolic gears.”

Developers increasingly value the importance of hypoid gears in the development of automotive rear axle assemblies. There are increasing requirements for gear weight, transmission stability, load carrying capacity, and life expectancy.

Hypoid gears have a complex curved tooth surface, making it difficult to obtain an accurate geometric model using conventional methods. Consequently, obtaining an accurate finite element model is even more challenging.

To simulate the complex surface contact process accurately, a high level of accuracy is required for the finite element model. The most accurate finite element model is the hexahedral finite element model.
