GeroLAB package system
Innovative Tool to Design a Gerotor Pump
"A tool intended to improve the design methodology of a trochoidal gear, which works as a part of a hydraulic pump"
The software presented is an integrated package system, which is composed of three basic modules: design, volumetric characteristics, and contact stress module. As a result, by consecutively following each module, this new tool allows to find the better gear set for the concrete initial required design parameters.
Aiming to lead the designer to a better design by improving performance indexes of a new born gerotor pump project
GeroLAB software is an integrated package system based on modules and was written by using SCILAB©. Basically, the methodology consists of three phases, each of which is related to a basic module. By consecutively following each phase, the software is capable of integrating the design of a gear set for a gerotor pump.
