An alternative formulation for the definition of profile modifications in high-contact-ratio (HCR) spur gears is presented which makes it possible to select optimum relief with regard to transmission error (TE) fluctuations over a range of loads. General guidelines are presented which can help design optimum relief with minimum effort. It is also confirmed that two-slope profile relief can improve the dynamic behavior of HCR spur gears.
