The article "Longitudinal Load Distribution Factor for Straddle- and Overhang-Mounted Spur Gears" appeared in the July/August 1987 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
A pair of spur gears generally has an effective lead error which is caused, not only by manufacturing and assembling errors, but also by the deformations of shafts, bearings and housings due to the transmitted load. The longitudinal load distribution on a contact line of the teeth of the gears is not uniform because of the effective lead error.
