Two distinct components comprise the total load carried by gear teeth. These are the useful or transmitted load, and the other, the dynamic load, is a waste load caused by gear errors. The article presents a reasonably accurate method for determining the dynamic load on a gear for both spur gears and helical gears. The article then gives examples from experience of the advantages of helical gears over spur gears and of the importance of considering the dynamic loading of gears in the design stage. The conclusion is that the method given is a useful design tool which can be used to evaluate the load of any spur or helical gear at both low and high speeds and under different conditions of loading.
