Nearly Epicycloidal Teeth: Williss Method.To facilitate the drawing of epicycloidal teeth in practice, Willis showed how to approximate to their figure by means of two circular arcsone concave, for the flank, and the other convex, for the faceand each having for its radius the mean radius of curvature of the epicycloidal arc. \Villiss formulae are founded on the following properties of epicycloids Let R be the radius of the pitch-circle; r that of the describing circle; 8 the angle made by the normal TI to the epicycloid at a given point T, with a tangent-to the circle at Ithat is, the obliquity of the action at T.
Also, to find the position of the centres of curvature relatively to the pitch-circle, we have, denoting the chord of the describing circle TI bye, c=2r sin 0; and therefore For the flank, p C=2r sine ~~_r} (29) For the face, pC2r sin 8 ~-~
