This paper presents the development of a simple model which computes the deflection of the base of wide face width gear teeth. The model was developed using the results of numerous finite element analyses of gear teeth and a nondimensional analysis of the results. Tooth end effects are considered through the application of the moment image method. The method is very simple and allows easy implementation in three-dimensional gear tooth deflection analysis schemes.
