Bending stresses in spur gears have been obtained analytically using the Complex Potential Method of the two-dimensional theory of elasticity and conformal mapping of the tooth profile. Effects of profile shift and sliding friction on geometry factor have been studied for 20 deg pressure angle and numbers of teeth ranging from 20 to 150. It has been shown how these results can be applied to obtain a geometry factor corrected to include either the profile or the coefficient of friction effect in a given gear pair.
