Solution to Homework Set 9
Problem 14-15.
Since the pinion and the gear of the given spur gearset have the same material properties then the
power that the gearset can transmit is governed by the failure of the pinion. The problem is to
determine: (i) the power that can be transmitted considering pinion tooth bending failure, and (ii) the
power that can be transmitted considering pinion tooth wear. The power rating of the gearset will then
be the minimum of these two power ratings (for the specified design factor of 2.25).
Consider bending of the pinion tooth.
