Design of a Wormgear Reducer: A Case Study
This chapter presents a case study of a wormgear reducer design, which is used to corroborate the evolutionary model of the design process (Chapter 6). The design of the wormgear reducer is performed on both conceptual and detailed (parametric) levels. Conceptualization mainly involves inventive activities in the form of the generation of alternative possible solutions to the required goals (high level specifications). In parametric design, the dimensions of a part are calculated by solving a system of constraints (typically nonlinear equations). The constraints are considered part of the specifications.
