In the case of gearboxes, vibration is the primary mode of failure even at the mid-range of operating speeds. Avoiding such failures requires an understanding of gearbox design, vibration theory, and material properties. This chapter details sources and types of gearbox vibrations; characteristics of gearbox vibrations; fundamentals of periodic vibrations; and vibration theory. It provides housing design for single-stage offset parallel gearboxes, high-speed gearboxes, and epicyclic gearboxes. The chapter then provides an analysis and selection of design factors for vibration reduction. It presents five types of gear tooth geometry errors. The chapter also focuses on gear quality inspection and on bearing-induced vibrations.
