The aim of this paper is to determine the effect on direct design asymmetric high contact ratio spur gear based on tooth load sharing. A unique Ansys parametric design language code is developed for this study. The load sharing based bending and contact stresses are determined for different drive side contact ratios. In addition to that the location of critical loading point is determined. Because the critical loading point for high contact ratio spur gear not lies on fixed point like normal contact ratio spur gears namely highest point of single tooth contact. In conclusion an increase in drive side contact ratio leads to increase in the load sharing based bending stress and decrease in the contact stress at the critical loading point. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
