In this paper, orthotropic materials are selected to be used as a straight bevel gear. These materials have the advantage of being light, are durable in high speeds, require the minimum need for oil, high strengths, and extra loading capacities. Due to these properties, it is highly preferable comparing to conventional materials. This work demonstrates a standard form of the straight bevel gear, to focus on the study of the behaviour of material. Based on the complex proportional assessment method, we selected the woven roving glass fibre as an optimum material to be used in the straight bevel gear model. From the results, it was determined that the composite gear is better in terms of specific energy absorption and dynamic behaviour compared to steel gears. From the results, the jute-epoxy shows a very low value of stiffness and it can be concluded that the natural fibre is not suitable to be used as a material fora straight bevel gear.
