Simulating Gear Lubrication: Accurately Predicting Oil Flow Pattern, Temperature and Churning Losses
ANSYS offers a complete range of fluid dynamics simulation solutions for gear system lubrication that helps engineers:
- Ensure that the gears maintain structural integrity and produce minimum friction to reduce mechanical losses, ensure that gear teeth do not get damaged, etc.
- Avoid oil overheating ( for example, gear box oil fires can occur on wind turbine installations).
- Ensure minimal churning losses (generated by oil being stirred by rotating gears).
