Abstract: © The Authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2017. Gear train volume optimization presents a complex problem tied to practical application in gear train manufacturing. This paper is oriented on the analysis of the problem of gear train volume minimization from a shaft axes positioning aspect. An original mathematical model has been developed where the objective function gives a minimum volume with changed shaft (spur gear) axes positions, while at the same time complying with all physical constraints. An original optimization software has also been developed using RCGA (Real Coded Genetic Algorithm) optimization methods. The general mathematical model was applied to three real conceptions of gear train as well as a comparative analysis of initial and optimal values. The results show a decrease of volume being directly linked to a decrease of not only space but material used to make the housing, costs, documentation formulation rate, etc.
