This paper presents a direct method for determining the geometry factor J for slotted external spur gears. The location of maximum stressed point on the tooth profile where the stress parabola is tangent to the fillet curve has been determined by solving the resulting nonlinear equations using the sophisticated Newton-Raphson method. The semi-graphical procedure given in AGMA Standard [1] is not convenient for determining the geometry factory J of large gears used in grinding mill and kiln drives in the mining industry. Listing of the computer program and input-output point out for a typical application are presented.
