In present day’s applications it is more and more significant to minimize space and material saving gears with wide applications in general machines for weight reduction and compact design. One option is to design the rim of gears as thin as possible in order to reduce maximum space. Design of thin rimmed gears for strength is the prime aim in order to bear high rotational speeds under harsh conditions. In present work, some studies relevant to finite element modelling and finite element analysis of thin rimmed gears are performed. These studies will assist in prospects and concerns of the thin-rimmed gears while designing them for moderate loading and with cost effectiveness. Finite element studies for static structural analysis, modal analysis and contact analysis simulating real-time conditions are presented.
