Optional Component:

This program gearload_bm107med calculates the bearing loads due to gear power transmission and aero thrust forces. The gears can be spur gears, helical gears, or double helical gears (herringbone gears). Applications include integrally geared compressors, blowers, pumps, and expanders, etc. Typical compressor system configuration includes a driver unit (motor, engine, turbine, etc.), which drives several high-speed shafts (driven units). The Gear can be either a Driver or Driven Gear. For applications like expander or turbine which high-speed expander/turbine will drive the low speed bull gear and the low speed bull gear becomes the driven unit.
