## Abstract

From a geometric viewpoint, a mathematical model of a single screw compressor with a conjugate pair of meshing conical teeth gate rotor is a conjugate problem. Coordinate transformation and envelope theory are applied to determine the sets of spatial points of the contacting surfaces that define the main rotor of a single screw compressor. Envelope theory and analytical procedure are used to derive mathematical models of a gate rotor and a main rotor. Stress analysis for the single screw compressor mechanism is performed. PowerMILL software package is used to simulate the manufacture of a main rotor. A numerical example with a compressor ratio of 11:6 is presented to demonstrate the application of the mathematical models developed in mis paper.
