Gear Design Relevant Cleanness Metrics

A method is presented to characterize premium quality clean steels using statistics of extreme values (SEV) and quantitative stereology. The data can be used to perform gear design relevant engineering analysis of the potential for a gear failure due to bending fatigue in the...

Materials Matter: Increasing Gear Set Power Density

High-strength, high-toughness steels can be used to increase power density while addressing critical components of gear set design.

Materials Matter: Optimizing Gear Performance

The most significant factors to consider when it comes to the impact of steels on gear design, manufacturing, and performance.
