Carlo Gorla has since 1998 distinguished himself as professor of machine design in the department of mechanical engineering at Politecnico di Milano. His career has been devoted to the research of power transmission and gears — gears for aerospace application; gear failures; bending and contact fatigue; gear efficiency; gear noise; and transmission error. Gorla also serves as technical editor of the influential Organi di Trasmissione. (Bio last updated 2017-01-01 Contact Randy Stott, Managing Editor, with changes.)

- Repair of Large, Surface-Degraded Industrial Gears - a New Approach (January/February 2017)
This paper presents a new approach to repair industrial gears by showing a case study where pressure angle modification is also considered, differently from the past repairing procedures that dealt only with the modification of the profile shift coefficient. A computer program has been developed to automatically determine the repair alternatives under two goals: minimize the stock removal or maximize gear tooth strength.
