Abstract : An experimental study was conducted to determine the effect of lubricant jet location on spiral bevel gear bulk temperatures. Transient surface temperatures were also measured. Tests were conducted on aircraft quality spiral bevel gears in a closed-loop test facility. Thermocoupled pinions and an infrared microscope were used to collect the pertinent data. A single fan jet lubricated the test gears. Lubricant flow rate (lubricant jet pressure) and applied torque were also varied. The results of this study showed that jet placement had a significant effect on the gear bulk temperatures.
