The full thermal elastohydrodynamic analysis of the lubrication of hypoid gears is presented. A numerical solution of the coupled Reynolds, elasticity and energy equations for the pressure, temperature and film thickness is obtained. The temperature variations across the oil film and in the pinion and gear teeth are included. The real tooth geometry of the modified hypoid gears is treated. The effect of the operating conditions on the performance characteristics is discussed.
