Abstract
Some interesting characteristics of trochoids are discussed in this paper a nd a new concept of virtual involute is introduced. These characteristics p rove very useful in determining the exact tooth fillet shape generated by r acks consisting of circular arcs and straight line segments. The fillet cur ves generated by racks with a protuberance or with a chamfered tip are disc ussed in detail. A numerical example is given to illustrate their applicati on.
