The flash-temperature theory plays an important part in the attempt to explain the scoring phenomenon of gears. Purpose of the investigations was to measure the surface temperatures of meshing gears. Results are presented as to the following influences on the surface temperatures: Tooth profile, loading, pitch-line velocity, surface roughness, synthetic lubricant and face width. The results are compared with the flash-temperature equation according to Blok.
