Abstract : The dynamic loads acting on gear teeth are very complex. To better understand dynamic loads, this research was carried out with the objectives of measuring experimentally dynamic loads and the frictional forces between gear teeth in mesh. By using strain gages mounted on the sides of the teeth, the transverse component of the dynamic load was measured and is shown for all phases of contact. Using the transverse component at the pitch radius, the dynamic load ratios were computed and found to be substantially lower than predicted by the Buckingham equation. However, sufficient information for evaluating the frictional force was not obtained and further research will be required to evaluate the radial component of the dynamic load. (Author)
