A dynamic model of an engaging spur gear pair is proposed to study the distributions and variation of bending and surface contact stresses around the fillet and contacting points for plastic gears. The parameters used in this dynamic model include time-varying mesh stiffness, frictional coefficient, and profile-shifted factor, etc. Due to high sensitivity to heat for plastic material, the influence of temperature on plastic gears has also been taken into consideration in this work. A computational algorithm is developed to simulate the variation of fillet bending and surface contact stresses during the engagement with different speeds. The results indicate that the operating temperature may affect the distribution and the magnitude of bending and surface contact stresses of a plastic gear pair significantly.
