Influences of the Residual Stress Condition on the Load-Carrying Capacity of Case-Hardened Gears - August 2018

The article "Influences of the Residual Stress Condition on the Load-Carrying Capacity of Case-Hardened Gears" appeared in the August 2018 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Highly loaded gears are usually casehardened to fulfill the high demands on the load-carrying capacity. Several factors, such as material, heat treatment, or macro and micro geometry, can influence the load-carrying capacity. Furthermore, the residual stress condition also significantly influences load-carrying capacity. The residual stress state results from heat treatment and can be further modified by manufacturing processes post heat treatment, e.g. grinding or shot peening.
