This book presents papers from the International Conference on Power Transmissions 2016, held in Chongqing, China, 27th-30th October 2016. The main objective of this conference is to provide a forum for the most recent advances, addressing the challenges in modern mechanical transmissions. The conference proceedings address all aspects of gear and power transmission technology and a range of applications. The presented papers are catalogued into three main tracks, including design, simulation and testing, materials and manufacturing, and industrial applications.
The design, simulation and testing track covers topics such as new methods and designs for all types of transmissions, modelling and simulation of power transmissions, strength, fatigue, dynamics and reliability of power transmissions, lubrication and sealing technologies and theories, and fault diagnosis of power transmissions. In the materials and manufacturing track, topics include new materials and heat treatment of power transmissions, new manufacturing technologies of power transmissions, improved tools to predict future demands on production systems, new technologies for ecologically sustainable productions and those which preserve natural resources, and measuring technologies of power transmissions. The proceedings also cover the novel industrial applications of power transmissions in marine, aerospace and railway contexts, wind turbines, the automotive industry, construction machinery, and robots.
