This paper simulates the non-linear vibration of a gear pair including shaft flexibility. Backlash is included because of the clearance between the teeth and the periodic variation in the stiffness of the mesh produces a parametric excitation. This paper shows the different behaviour that may be observed when the additional degree of freedom is added to the single degree of freedom model previously analysed.
