PUBLICATIONS

EXCLUSIVELY FOR BGA MEMBERS

The BGA is pleased to be able to offer members unlimited access to a whole range of publications and learning resources completely free of charge.

Below, you will find details of each publication category that we host, as well as a description of what type of documents and other materials are contained in each. Some of the publications available are lecture notes from previously held seminars, others are critical reviews and product documentation, whilst there are also larger technical manuals available to browse.

Each of these publications will help members to expand their knowledge-base, increase their understanding and consider new aspects relating to their industry. That is why we have made them free to download for members, to help further the Power Transmission industry in the UK by creating a rich resource for all.

Also available for download below are various Codes of Practice. These Codes of Practice should help any individual or business working within or alongside the gear industry to standardise the terminology they use as well as the methods employed for presenting data, metrics and results. The BGA encourages all Members to adopt the working models outlined in the Codes of Practice to create a better industry.

Codes of Practice are a series of publications covering the specification and measurement of gears, their purpose is to improve the day to day working practices of the industry at large. The Codes embody the best features of practical procedures that are already well established in some organisations. As well as encouraging the adoption of these better working practices throughout the industry, these Codes of Practice should also help to standardise the terminology used and the methods of presentation of gear data and measurement results. This should reduce the misunderstandings between customer and supplier and therefore lead ultimately to the production of better gears.

Based on its highly successful 3 volume Teaching Pack the preparation and publication of the Manual has been sponsored financially by the British Gear Association to provide a wider understanding of gearing, and to help compensate for a lack of up-to-date English-Language books on the subject of gearing design.

The six modules comprise a total of more than 350 pages of text, notes and diagrams and cover respectively: Drive Systems, Gear System Design, Gear Geometry, Design and Stress Analysis of Spur and Helical Gears, Gearbox Design, Manufacture and Metrology of Spur and Helical Gears.

This essential publication is available completely free of charge to BGA Members – Click here to download.
