Gear meshing plays an important part in the vibrational and acoustical behavior of gearboxes and drivetrains. This is especially relevant for analyzing electric drives. The gear meshing, as the source of excitation In gearboxes or drivetrains, has to flow through gear wheel bodies, shafts, and bearings before the gearbox housing will start to oscillate.
To reproduce this behavior in a simulation model, all these elements have to be represented in an appropriate way (e.g. as flexible bodies or force elements) meaning multibody simulation is the tool of choice.
