# Example of gearbox calculation.

## Example of gearbox calculation.

In this chapter we will present a complete design of a one-speed gearbox driven by a belt transmission and driving a chain transmission.

## Input conditions.

Transmitted power output 10 kW, electric motor speed 1450 /min, required output speed 30 /min. Load type - static, slight impacts, service life 20,000 hours. Material requirements are not defined.

## Predistribution of transmission ratio.

• Belt transmission: V-belt, transmission 1:3, output speed 1450 / 3 = 483.33
• One-speed gearbox: External spur gear with helical toothing, transmission 1:4, output speed 483.33 / 4 = 120.83
• Chain transmission: Roller chain transmission, transmission 1:4, output speed, 120.83 / 4 = 30.21

## Used calculations.

A total of twelve calculations, by means of which not only gearing, but also shafts, bearings, shaft connections, belt transmission and chain transmission can be designed and checked, have been used for the design. Relations between the individual calculations can also be created in calculating. This enables the creation of a comprehensive solution, which makes it possible to design various power options very fast through a simple change in input parameters and recalculation of all nodes.

It is evident that the result of calculations cannot be a complete design. However, the present calculations will make it possible to design the dimensions very fast (several hours), including the basic concept of the designed solution and including the basic optimization. Thus, it is possible to assess the suitability of the designed structure very quickly.
