In order to analyze the dynamic behavior of the oil film in the herringbone gear meshing area under oil injection lubrication conditions more accurately, this paper proposed a thermal elastohydrodynamic lubrication (TEHL) analysis method, by combining the traditional TEHL calculation method with two-phase flow theory. Firstly, ANSYS/CFX 18.1 was used to determine the air content of the lubricating oil in the meshing zone under the injection condition. Then, considering the influence of air content on the rheological properties of lubricating oil, the traditional TEHL model was improved. On this basis, the influence of injection angle a1 on the oil fraction and the lubrication characteristics of the oil film was analyzed. This research can provide a feasible method for the analysis of the lubrication characteristics of herringbone gear.
