Calculation of load capacity of bevel gears - Part 3: Calculation of tooth root strength
ISO 10300-3 2014
ISO 10300-3 2014
This part of ISO 10300 specifies the fundamental formulae for use in the tooth root stress calculation
of straight and helical (skew), Zerol and spiral bevel gears including hypoid gears, with a minimum rim
thickness under the root of 3,5 mmn. All load influences on tooth root stress are included, insofar as
they are the result of load transmitted by the gearing and able to be evaluated quantitatively. Stresses,
such as those caused by the shrink fitting of gear rims, which are superposed on stresses due to tooth
loading, are intended to be considered in the calculation of the tooth root stress, ?F, or the permissible
tooth root stress ?FP. This part of ISO 10300 is not applicable in the assessment of the so-called flank
breakage, a tooth internal fatigue fracture (TIFF).

The formulae in this part of ISO 10300 are based on virtual cylindrical gears and restricted to bevel
gears whose virtual cylindrical gears have transverse contact ratios of ?v? < 2. The results are valid
within the range of the applied factors as specified in ISO 10300 1 (see also ISO 6336 3[1]). Additionally,
the given relationships are valid for bevel gears, of which the sum of profile shift coefficients of pinion
and wheel is zero (see ISO 23509).

This part of ISO 10300 does not apply to stress levels above those permitted for 103 cycles, as stresses
in that range could exceed the elastic limit of the gear tooth.
The new standard is a revision of ISO 10300-3:2001.
