Measurements of dynamic transmission error (DTE) and noise have been performed on a truck gearbox. The DTE is related to the dynamic properties of the complete gear system. To investigate the coupling between noise and DTE, the correlation between noise and DTE is calculated for fixed speeds, as the torque is increased. The highest correlation is found for the low split gear pair, which is located closest to the gearbox housing. When the correlation is low, one of the reasons can be a resonance of the shafts, although not all resonances effect the correlation between noise and DTE. The DTE is also compared to calculated static TE for the gear teeth. Both the DTE and noise for the fifth gear increases as the torque is increased. The calculated static TE shows the opposite trend and decreases as the torque is increased.
