Experimental results, obtained from the UK 8 MW facility for gear research at the University of Newcastle, are presented, which show how the load distribution across a large face-width gear varies with misalignment. Tests were carried out over a range of torque conditions using pinion flanks which were crowned or which had lead modification. The crowned flanks were shown to be more tolerant of misalignment but, at low misalignments, gave slightly higher stress levels than those with lead modification.
