The AGMA 2017 Fall Technical Meeting (FTM) will be held immediately before GEAR EXPO 2017 in Columbus, Ohio, USA.


The AGMA FTM is a forum where authors present peer-reviewed technical papers on topics relevant to the gear industry. These topics may include subject matter related to the following: design and analysis; manufacturing and quality; materials, metallurgy, and heat treatment; operation, maintenance, and efficiency; and gear failure.

Papers should be original to the AGMA audience (not previously published paper), technically accurate, relevant, and free of commercialism.

While all abstracts will be considered, papers on the following topics would be of considerable interest:
