INCREASE IN THE LOAD-CARRYING CAPACITY OF A LARGE-SIZED MARINE REDUCTION GEAR
Deals with the development of high-hardness steel and accuracy of gear tooth finishing which are intended for increasing the surface durability of the marine reduction gear. In conclusion, it is quite certain that the allowable K-factor of the newly developed gear material can be increased by approximately 60 percent as compared with that of the conventional material. Also, it has been made evident that the surface roughness of the gear teeth has a great effect on the tooth surface durabilities.
