Stresses developed in the root fillet of the spur gear tooth due to static load are evaluated by using the finite element method. The method is automated with a computer program with which the effects of module, contact ratio, fillet radius, pressure angle and teeth numbers of driving and driven gears are evaluated. The results are compared with previous studies. The formula which gives the closest results to this study is presented.
