Contact Ratio
• To transmit rotational motion continuous there must be at least one pair of
contacting teeth at all times
• Typically, there are more than one pair in contact, hence overlapping of teeth
• Contact Ratio is used to provide quantitative measure of the amount of overlap

Contact Ratio
Question
The pitch circle radii of two involute spur gears in mesh are 51.5mm
and 64.2mm. The outer circle radii are 57.5mm and 71.2mm,
respectively, the operating pressure angle being 20 degrees.
Determine
1) Length of the path of contact
2) Contact ratio if the number of teeth on the larger gear is 20

Gear Trains
• Combination of gears that is used for transmitting motion from one shaft
to another is known as a Gear Train
• Two or more gears working in a sequence (train) are called a gear train
• Idler gear
• A single idler gear is used to reverse the direction
• Gear Trains
1. Simple gear train
2. Compound gear train
3. Epicyclic gear train
