Hello everyone,
I am modeling the position varying gear mesh stiffness function with the following code inside ODE solver.
z(k) = mod(theta_p,2*pi/t_np);
if z(k)>=(2-c)*2*pi/t_np
k_m(k) = k_max;
k_m(k) = k_min;
where c, k_max, k_min, t_np are the constants:
k_min = 5e7/2; %minimum stiffness;
k_max = 5e7; %maximum stiffness;
c = 1.63; %engagement rate;
t_np = 25; %number of teeth on pinion;
The goal of this function is to make a square wave with t_np number of maximums over 2*pi interval.
This is how the time/varying gear mesh stiffness should look like:
When the gear have a fault, the stiffness of the faulty gear tooth is compromized, so when the broken tooth is in contact, the stiffness will decrease. I am struggling to figure out how to make the value of one of the minima less than others on each 2*pi intervals. Any suggestions highly appreciated.
Thank you!
