This paper prescribes a Computer Aided approach to the design of bevel gears. The approach utilizes standard design equations and standard data on bevel gears; linking them together using a Programming language(C#) to develop this special software (Bevel CAD) that designs and determines the strengths and dimensions of bevel gears. This study reviews the Procedural steps (algorithms) involved in the design of bevel gears and the development of the software package (Bevel CAD) which is to be used in designing bevel gears. When material required are selected based on the area of application, the software will make use of the data provided using the C# to determine the required; speed and velocity of the bevel gear, number of teeth, speed ratio, dynamic load, endurance strength and maximum wear load for the design bevel gear. The Bevel CAD’s performance was verified by comparing the results of Algorithm calculation and the software’s results. The Bevel CAD was confirmed effective as the minor differences obtained between the results were due to approximation errors. The Bevel CAD increases productivity but reduces drudgery of enormous calculations; hence, making it a recommended tool for industries and tertiary institutions for the designing of bevel gears.
