A rigorous and accurate finite element model has been developed and applied to deal with an involute gear drive considering friction effects. The loss of torque transmission due to friction and effective friction coefficient are evaluated and computed. The rolling and/or sliding behaviors between two engaged gears during an engagement cycle are also discussed. The patterns of stress distributions and deformations of two contact gears at various engagement angles are then presented. Excellent correlations between the calculated results and referenced experimental data can be found.
