gear pressure angle depth 1Working depth, abbreviated as WD, the depth of engagement, when two mating gear meshes with each other.


Working Depth formula

\(\large{ WD = A_g + A_p  }\) 
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ WD }\) = working depth \(\large{in}\) \(\large{mm}\)
\(\large{ A_g }\) = addendum of gear
\(\large{in}\) \(\large{mm}\)
\(\large{ A_p }\) = addendum of pinion \(\large{in}\) \(\large{mm}\)
