This paper deals with the longitudinal load distribution and the bending moment distribution of a pair of helical gears with a known total alignment error. The load distribution along the contact lines is calculated by the finite element method based on the plate theory including transverse shear deformation. Empirical formulas for both longitudinal load distribution factor and bending moment distribution factor are proposed for practical use. The load distribution factor in AGMA 218.01 is examined, and it is concluded that the load distribution factor is close to the calculated results if the value of unity is taken as the transverse load distribution factor.
