Mechanisms of Gear Tooth Failure

This information sheet describes many of the ways in which gear teeth can fail and recommends methods for reducing gear failure. It provides guidance for those attempting to analyze gear failures. It should be used in conjunction with ANSI/AGMA 1010-E95 in which the gear tooth failure modes are defined. They are described in detail to help investigators understand failures and investigate remedies. This information sheet does not discuss the details of disciplines such as dynamics, material science, corrosion or tribology. It is hoped that the material presented will facilitate communication in the investigation of gear operating problems.
