ASEE Albert w. smith 1905 Peter Sawchuck is required to design a two-speed gear box for a cold rolling mill coiler. He undertakes the design of a one-off unit that will satisfy the requirements. The basic gear design is governed by AGMA specs, but the remaining components are governed by reliability and economic considerations. This case study is part of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Engineering Case Library (ECL), which can be downloaded in full as a 300mb zip file. The Engineering Case Program originated at Stanford University in 1964 with the support of the National Science Foundation. The catalog was maintained by Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and Carleton University. It continues under the sponsorship of the Design in Engineering Education Division (DEED) of the ASEE.
