This paper presents the concept of eccentric elliptical gear train able to generate a variable gear ratio law. The first step in the noncircular gears virtual design process is the generation of the conjugate pitch curves, starting from a predesigned law of motion for the driven element or a predesigned geometry for the driving gear pitch curve. By designing a pair of non-circular gears, which are able to perform a proper gear ratio function, the output member of a mechanism can be effectively

Detailed knowledge of meshing conditions is a prerequisite for studying kinematic conditions in gearings, as well as the strength calculation of gearing.
