In this undergraduate research study, tooth bending fatigue lives of two nominally equivalent gear are evaluated. A methodology to design and develop customized fixtures to enable fatigue experiments of test gears on hydraulic load frames is proposed. The fabricated test fixtures are incorporated in a load frame and two sets of bending fatigue tests with both gear variations are performed. Various statistical analyses of the collected fatigue data are performed to determine whether any statistically significant difference in the fatigue lives of two gears could be detected.
