Compared to the commonly used Low Contact Ratio Spur Gears (LCRG), High Contact Ratio Spur Gears (HCRG) can provide higher power to weight ratio, and can also achieve smoother running with lower Transmission Error (TE) variations. To achieve the benefits of High Contact Ratio Spur Gears (HCRG), its tolerance to manufacturing errors and elastic deformation has to be increased. After various attempts by previous researchers, double scope tooth profile modifications have been seen as being of major interest showing great potential for improvements in most applications. Research presented in this paper concentrated on providing further proofs and verifications on the topic by using modern numerical methods and comprehensive analysis. Additionally, a general Bulk Tooth Rotation (BTR) type tooth profile modification is introduced and applied to the High Contact Ratio Spur Gears (HCRG) in order to improve the tooth profile design and some common higher order analysis is shown allowing further comments to be made.
