Abstract

The subject of this paper is the analysis of contact stresses that occur between the teeth of a gear. The analysis was carried out by means of reflection photoelasticity, which is an experimental method rarely used in this field. Contact stresses assessed in the experiment are compared with values assessed through an analytical calculation while using the Airy stress function or Hertzian relations.
