The initial contact state between two interacting gears proves of interest due to empirical evidence indicating difference in life and efficiency in the long term due to the initial operation. Presented here is an analysis of the initial contact state of spur gears, made of case carburized 16MnCr5 steel, by the use of in situ surface measurements and friction measurements in a back-to-back test rig during the running-in cycles. Furthermore a method to estimate wear during running-in is proposed. Results show that the most significant changes in roughness and friction occurred during the first initial cycles at high load.
