Considering bearing clearance, time-varying mesh stiffness, time-varying transmission error and shaft flexibility, a coupled gear-shaft-bearing dynamic model for a helical gear transmission is established. The influences of rotating speed, input torque load and bearing clearance on the dynamics are studied. Results show that the frequency and the magnitude of the peak response increase with the increase of load. As the bearing clearance increases, the amplitude of the dominant mesh frequency is significantly increased. Under lower speed, the clearance has a limited effect on the dynamic mesh force. However, under moderate and high speeds, the main peak response frequency of the dynamic mesh force is decreased as it increases.
