The optimum design of an involute K-H-V PDSTND is restudied and remains a difficult task even using a profile shift for the design case discussed in the literature. In fact, the difficulty arises from the design with a very high efficiency and the peculiar tip interference. Because of the failure to obtain feasible designs using profile-shifted full-depth and stub teeth, another feasible design scheme is used by altering the addendums of involute profile-shifted full-depth teeth. In this study, the objective function of the optimum design is a weighted combination of two main performance factors, i.e., the reciprocal of the contact ratio and the working pressure angle. The optimization problem is solved using a combined-mutation differential evolution algorithm. The performance can be improved using the afore-mentioned design scheme; however, there is still room for improvements. Therefore, the use of different modules in mesh for involute profile-shifted full-depth teeth with variation in addendum is proposed and the corresponding meshing equation is derived. The findings show that further improvements on the performance can be achieved.
