Influence of Grinding Burn on Pitting Capacity
The article "Influence of Grinding Burn on Pitting Capacity" appeared in the August 2008 issue of Gear Technology.
This paper intends to determine the load-carrying capacity of thermally damaged parts under rolling stress. Since inspection using real gears is problematic, rollers are chosen as an acceptable substitute. The examined scope of thermal damage from hard finishing extends from undamaged, best-case parts to a rehardening zone as the worst case. Also, two degrees of a tempered zone have been examined.
