The article "Gear Tooth Scoring Design Considerations for Spur and Helical Gearing" appeared in the May/June 1985 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
High speed gearing, operating with low viscosity lubricants, is prone to a failure mode called scoring. In contrast to the classic failure modes, pitting and breakage, which generally take time to develop, scoring occurs early in the operation of a gear set and can be the limiting factor in the gear's power capability.
