ISO/TC 60 Working Group 15, responsible for the development of documents related to the determination of micropitting risk, has just published ISO/TR 15144-2:2014 “Calculation of micropitting load capacity of cylindrical spur and helical gears - Part 2: Examples of calculation for micropitting”.
This Technical Report provides worked examples for the application of the calculation procedures defined in ISO/TR 15144-1. The example calculations cover the application to spur and helical cylindrical involute gears for both high-speed and low-speed operating conditions, determining the micropitting safety factor for each gear pair. The calculation procedures used are consistent with those presented in ISO/TR 15144-1.
As the US TAG to this Working Group, members of the AGMA Helical Gear Rating Committee contributed actively to the development of this new document.
