Abstract:

The evolution of a successful gearbox design involves much development testing which is both time consuming and expensive. For this reason full advantage should be taken of laboratory simulation tests for which, to be successful, predictions must, obviously, be reliable. Some of the more salient aspects of simulation testing are set out along with a few examples drawn from the authors experience.
