This report documents a study of the wear debris characteristics of grease-lubricated spur gears. Gear sets were operated in an attempt to correlate the wear state of gears with the wear debris found in the grease. A firm correlation between the two could not be accomplished due primarily to the inability to obtain clear ferrograms from the grease medium.
