temperature distributions on a spur gear tooth. The gear tooth was subjected to temperature variations both at the top and root as well as variations in the respective coordinate of the material particles. The developed model was further used to evaluate the rate of heat transfer through the gear material. The result showed that the heat flux decreases with increasing values of Z which represent the particle coordinate. However, change in Z coordinate also constitute increased random motion of the particles in the gear causing steady degradation even at decreasing heat flux. Therefore, the study has revealed that temperature variation has negative effect on the wear mode of the gear material and at higher temperature, failure of the gear tooth would set in.
