involute

x The involute of the catenary is called the tractory, tractrix or antifriction curve; it has a cusp at the vertex of the catenary, and is asymptotic to the directrix.

00- Transverse section of an involute leaf.

00~s Now, suppose a tracing point T Pa to be fixed to the cord, so as to be carried along the path of con- Dz a tact P11P2, that point will trace on a plane rotating along with the wheel I part of the involute of the base-circle DfD1, and on a plane rotating along with the wheel 2

00part of the involute of the base- C2

00Consequently, one of the forms suitable for the teeth of wheels is the involute of a circle; and the obliquity of the action of such teeth is the angle whose cosine is the ratio of the radius of their base-circle to that of the pitch-circle of the wheel.

00All involute teeth of the same pitch work smoothly together.

00which, substituted in equation (63), gives the work lost in a unit of time by th~ friction of involute teeth.

00This result, which is exact for involute teeth, is approximately true for teeth of any figure.

00Involute TeethThe simplest form of tooth which fulfils the conditions of 45 is obtained in the following manner (see fig.

00All involute teeth of the same pitch work smoothly together.

00The teeth of a rack, to work correctly with wheels having involute teeth, should have plane surfaces perpendicular to the line of connection, and consequently making with the direction of motion of the rack angles equal to the complement of the obliquity of action.

00The smallest number of teeth in a pinion for epicycloidal teeth ought to be twelve (see 49)but it is better, for smoothness of motion, not to go below fifteen; and for involute teeth the smallest number is about twenty-four.
