The load can be defined using torque and geometry data for a bevel or hypoid gear.
The direction of torque can either be defined by its sign or by the selection “Shaft is driven”/Shaft is driving”. The contact point is given by an angle of contact, which is zero on the y-axis and 90° on the z-axis.
Either the pitch angle can be defined directly or it is calculated using axis angle and number of teeth of the mating gear.
Instead of the mean normal module, the outer pitch diameter can be used as an input.
The width is the width of the gear (the length of the flank), the axial length of the loaded shaft is smaller dependent on the pitch angle.
