# MCQs on Strength of Bevel Gears

1 - Question

Lewis equation is used to obtain ____ strength of bevel gears.

a) Beam
b) Abrasive
c) Wear
d) Corrosive

Explanation: According to Lewis equation, Beam strength=product of module, face width of elemental section, permissible bending stress and Lewis form factor.

2 - Question

Beam strength of the bevel gear is independent of the cone distance.

a) True
b) False

Explanation: In other form S=mbσY[1- b/A] where A= cone distance.

3 - Question

Beam strength indicates the maximum value of the ___________ force at the large end of the tooth that the tooth can transmit without bending.

a) Tangential
c) Axial
d) None of the listed

Explanation: Beam strength is analysed by using the pitch radius at the larger end of the tooth.

4 - Question

Wear strength of the bevel gear can be calculated by using ________ equation.

a) Buckingham
b) Lewis
c) Newtonian
d) Rayleigh

Explanation: Bevel gear is considered to be equivalent to a formative spur gear in a plane which is perpendicular to the large end and hence Buckingham equation is applied.

5 - Question

If back cone distance is 10mm, then pitch circle diameter of the formative pinion is given by?

a) 10mm
b) 20mm
c) 5mm
d) 10√2 mm

Explanation: PCD=2xr.

6 - Question

The wear strength indicates the maximum value of radial force at the large end of the tooth that the tooth can transmit without pitting failure.

a) True
b) False

Explanation: It indicates the maximum value of tangential force.

7 - Question

If velocity is 5m/s, then velocity factor for a cut teeth is

a) 0.55
b) 0.66
c) 1.55
d) 1.66

Explanation: C=6/6+v.

8 - Question

If velocity is 5m/s, then velocity factor for generated teeth is

a) 0.71
b) 1.1
c) 0.9
d) 1.71

Explanation: C=5.6/5.6+√v.

9 - Question

Calculate the ratio factor Q if a pair of bevel gear consist of 25 teeth pinion meshing with a 40 teeth gear.

a) 1.964
b) 1.438
c) 1.554
d) 0.998

Explanation: tanϒ=25/40 or ϒ=32⁰. Q=2×40/ [40+25xtan(32)].

10 - Question

If surface hardness for a par of bevel gears is 400BHN, then material constant is

a) 3N/mm²
b) 2.56N/mm²
c) 0.98N/mm²
d) 1.44N/mm²

Explanation: K=0.16x[BHN/100]².

11 - Question

a) 3668.5N
b) 4884.5N
c) 5126.6N
d) 4117.3N

Explanation: S=0.75xbxQxDxK/Cos ϒ. Tan ϒ=25/40 or ϒ=32⁰. Q=2×40/ [40+25xtan(32)] K=0.16x[BHN/100]².
