scope:

This document provides currently available information pertaining to oil lubrication of industrial gears for power transmission applications. It is intended to serve as a general guideline and source of information about gear oils, their properties, and their tribological behavior in gear contacts. Equations provided allow the calculation of specific film thickness and instantaneous contact (flash) temperature for gears in service, and to help assess the potential risk of surface distress (scuffing, micropitting and macropitting, and scoring) involved with a given lubricant choice.
