In this paper, the analytical investigation is done to evaluate the normal and principal curvatures of contacting surfaces in higher pair contact. The velocity ratio of the members connected with the higher-pair-contact surfaces is assumed to be variable. The principal curvatures of the generated or driven surface are expressed in terms of those of the generating or driving surface.
