In this thesis, helical gears are designed according to different design approaches. The analytical iterations were made using MATLAB tool and the design results, module (m) and face width (F) were obtained for each design approach. Afterwards, three dimensional solid modeling was created using CATIA with the aid of design result of analytical calculations. The results obtained from the analytical method were confirmed by "Finite Element Analysis" using ANSYS. The design results of each design approach used in this study are compared with each other. Useful graphs, outputs, tables and charts are presented. In addition, the conversion factors of four different design approaches with respect to ANSI / AGMA Standard were obtained.
