Paper Abstract

This paper presents a spiral bevel gear strain measurement using optical fiber gratings. High-speed and heavy-duty spiral bevel gear (SBG) is the key component of the power transmission of intersection axes. Its dynamic mechanical properties greatly influence the working performance of the machine. By building a strain detecting system based on FBG demodulation, we carried out real-time measurements of the distributed strain in the SBG with different torques and different rotation speed. The experimental results show a complete strain waveform from gear-in to gear-out, verifying the feasibility of measuring the strain of SBG using optical fiber gratings.
