This paper presents the design strategy for the Computer-Aided Design (CAD) of compact helical gear sets. Using optimization techniques, fundamental gear design parameters such as the number of teeth on the pinion, helix angle, and diametral pitch (or module) are selected subject to constraints on bending stresses, contact stresses, and involute interference limits for both standard and nonstandard gearing. The CAD procedure is illustrated with the help of a design example.
