The formulae specified are applicable for driving as well as for driven cylindrical gears with tooth profiles in line with the basic rack specified in ISO 53. They are also applicable for teeth conjugate to other basic racks where the virtual contact ratio (ean) is less than 2,5. The results are in good agreement with other methods for normal working pressure angles up to 25°, reference helix angles up to 25° and in cases where pitch line velocity is higher than 2 m/s.
This document is not applicable for the assessment of types of gear tooth surface damage other than micropitting.
