Abstract

It is important from prevention of the malfunction and an important accident by the failuer, to detect a failuer in revolution devices. The acoustic emission(AE) method is expected as means that defects an abnormal phenomenon of revolution devices earlily and utilized. Although a research example by the AE method is reported regarding a gears, little reserch has been conducted using the AE method for running gears in a bending fatigue process of spur gear teeth. Therefore, in this report, with two micro AE sensors attached to the side of the gear, AE was measured in a bending fatigue process of a carburizing gear by using the power circurating-type machine and AE source location in gear teeth were required. By various analysis in these data, the AE characteristics in the fatigue damaging process of the gear tooth were determined.
