Robert Errichello

The article "ISO-AGMA Standards: Specific Sliding Defined" appeared in the March 2017 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
Does the definition of specific sliding mean the same between ISO 21771:2007 and AGMA 917-B97? In ISO, specific sliding is the ratio of the sliding speed to the speed of a transverse profile in the direction of the tangent to the profile. In AGMA, specific sliding is ratio of gear tooth sliding velocity to its rolling velocity.
