The magnetic Barkhausen emission (MBE) technique is considered as a potential non-destructive evaluation (NDE) method for assessing material properties in case-hardened gears. For gear manufacturing industries, the evaluation of material properties such as tempering induced changes in hardness level and the associated microstuctural changes, variations in case-depth of hardened layer, grinding process induced alteration in microstructure, hardness and residual stress distributions are of primary importance in order to ensure the quality of gears during service. This paper presents an overview of different research and developmental studies carried out at Design Unit, Newcastle University on the MBE technique suitable for different applications in the evaluation of quality of gears.
