This paper investigates the static stress characteristics of an involute composite spur gear system including bending stresses and contact stresses of gears in mesh and comparing it with the existing involute cast iron spur gear system. The aim is to replace the cast iron spur gear with Carbon fibre epoxy composite spur gear due to its high strength, low weight and damping characteristics. A pair of involute spur gear is modelled in a CAD system (PRO/ ENGINEER) and FEA is done by using finite element software ANSYS 13. The bending stresses in the tooth root and contact stresses were examined using a 3-D FEM model. The bending stress obtained by finite element analysis method is compared with bending stress obtained by Lewis equation and the contact stress obtained by finite element analysis method is compared with contact stress obtained by Hertzian equation.
