Abstract:

The objective of the gear testing program was to provide growth potential for high capacity transmission systems, such as the CH-47A. Increased load carrying capacity for a gear system may be related to improvements in design, materials, or processing, or operating environment. This program undertook to compare three significantly different gear tooth grinding methods, and assess their effect on bending fatigue life. The three methods evaluated are as follows 1 Maag Maag Gear-Wheel Co., Zurich, Switzerland 2 Reishauer Fellows Gear Shaper Co., Springfield, Vermont 3 Form Gear Grinding Division, Michigan Tool Co., Detroit, Mich..
