A method for the determination of load and stress distributions along the contact lines of the instantaneously engaged teeth of spur and helical gears is represented in this paper. The calculation includes the tooth profile modifications and crownings, manufacturing and alignment errors of gears, tooth deflections, local contact deformations of teeth, gear body bending and torsion, and deflections of supporting shafts. The influence of gear parameters on load and stress distributions is discussed. On the basis of the obtained results, by regression analysis, equations are derived for the calculation of load and stress distribution factors.
