At the end of October 2018, GWJ Technology, a market-leading provider of software solutions for gear and gearboxes, organized a workshop for the second time for Formula Student Teams addressing "Gear Calculation, Dimensioning and Optimization – System Calculation".

Attracting attendees from more than 20 racing teams, the students enjoyed two insightful days of sharing knowledge, learning and networking. The first day kicked off with an introduction to gear calculation and the calculation software eAssistant. Basics for calculation and dimensioning of the geometry and the load capacity of cylindrical gears were the focus of the first workshop day. Topics covered in this workshop included also planetary gear trains in addition to cylindrical gear pairs. The students received tips and tricks as well as optimization strategies. The theoretical basics were illustrated with examples and deepened with practical exercises. The second day was another concentrated day of learning which focused on system calculation using the eAssistant SystemManager to configure and calculate complex systems with just a few mouse clicks. This workshop provided attendees with a hands-on introduction to the SystemManager basics and the students got the idea of what they could do with the software. The workshop included a series of practical exercises, especially multi-stage cylindrical gears as well as different forms of planetary gear trains. Advanced features such as the import and automatic meshing of housings and planet carrier were introduced following free-practice time at the end of the workshop. The workshop gave attendees the chance to work on their concrete transmission concepts and additional guidance was provided if needed. In 2019, GWJ Technology will continue its support of Formula Student Teams. We are very much looking forward to working with the students on the next workshop coming this year.
