UltraSafe Gear Systems - Single Tooth Bending Fatigue Test Results


This paper will discuss a system from a point of view of "what happens when a failure occurs". Gears were manufactured with seeded faults to simulate unexpected defects in various portions of the highly loaded gear tooth and rim sections. Crack propagation was monitored by measuring effective mesh stiffness and applied loading to provide both warning of an impending failure and a reasonable period operation after initiation of a failure for a safe landing.
