The action of mating gear teeth is a very complex thing. Very little is known of the forces that act on gears as they mesh. It is with this in mind that a testing machine was designed, built and used to investigate the feasability of obtaining gear tooth load information, by the use of strain gages mounted on the teeth of a test gear. The construction and operation of the testing machine is described, followed by the results of experiments conducted. The application of the experimental results to some design considerations in gears is then discussed. A great need exists for gear loading information, and the gear testing machine has proved to be successful in the initial phases of its operation
