Effect of Carbon and Density on Single Tooth Bending Strength a Bevel Gear Investigation 2006-01-0387
There are many factors that affect the durability of P/M gears. Among them is the property of single tooth bending strength. It is common knowledge that density, carbon, alloy composition, sintering and heat treatment play dominant roles in the strength and durability of P/M gears.
This paper demonstrates and quantifies the main effects and interactive effects these variables have on single tooth bending strength of a specific high performance P/M bevel gear.
