The vibration of the helical gear system is generated by three kinds of excitation. The first cause is a displacement excitation due to the tooth surface error. The second is a parametric excitation by the periodical change of the tooth mesh stiffness. The third is a moving load on the tooth surface during the progress of mesh of the teeth. In mesh of a pair of helical gears, the composite load of the distributed load along a contact line moves its operating location from one end of face width to the other end during the process of mesh progress. This moving load causes fluctuation of bearing load that excites the housing. Therefore, it is important to treat gear mesh excitation as a moving load problem. For this purpose, two kinds of mesh models, in which the three different types of excitations above are incorporated, are proposed. In the first model, a pair of gear tooth is represented by the multiple springs and the moving load can be taken into account by the multiple mesh excitation forces that have the phase differences from each other. The second one incorporates the excitation moment into the single tooth spring model. Then, response analysis is done for a simple gear-shaft model. As the result, the moving load causes vibration with non-coupled or independent modes between the drive and driven shaft. Thus, the effectiveness of the proposed method is established.
