The idea behind the plan of our team of constructing a gear exhibit is to demonstrate to the viewer how the design of gears has evolved over the years and the way new applications have affected different aspects of gears used today. We intended on displaying a three part exhibit. The first part will be an apparatus using wooden gears fashioned after those that would have been used in 2600 BC. The second portion of the exhibit will be a setup of two different diameter gears used to measure dynamic effects on metal helical gears. The third portion is a photoelastic assembly for the demonstration of stresses that develop on a system of two spur gears.
