gear calculation program LDP (Ref. 8) computed


the total force on one tooth as a function of posi-
tion in the mesh cycle. The tooth force was divid-
ed by the width of the tooth and applied as torque.
The residual stress due to case hardening was
found by applying an inelastic strain profile in
accordance with residual stress measurements.
The hardness penetration depth and ilts shape
were obtained by hardness measurements ..
