Micropitting of Large Gearboxes: Influence of Geometry and Operating Conditions - September/October 2014

The article "Micropitting of Large Gearboxes: Influence of Geometry and Operating Conditions" appeared in the September/October 2014 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
The focus of the following presentation is two-fold: 1) on tests of new geometric variants; and 2) on to-date, non-investigated operating (environmental) conditions. By variation of non-investigated eometric parameters and operation conditions the understanding of micropitting formation is improved. Thereby it is essential to ensure existent calculation methods and match them to results of the comparison between large gearbox tests and standard gearbox test runs to allow a safe forecast of wear due to micropitting in the future.
