Impact of Surface Condition and Lubricant on Effective Gear Tooth Friction Coefficient


Using a four-square, power re-circulating gear test rig with high accuracy torque transducers, losses due to operating speed, surface roughness, and torque level, including two different lubricants, were compared, and measurements of the effective coefficient of friction at the gear tooth flanks are provided. This paper summarizes the results obtained.
