Windage power losses from spiral bevel gears with varying oil flows and shroud configurations (2009)
Journal Article
Johnson, G., Chandra, B., Foord, C., & Simmons, K. (2009). Windage power losses from spiral bevel gears with varying oil flows and shroud configurations. Journal of Turbomachinery, 131(4), 1-7. https://doi.org/10.1115/1.3072519

In many aero-engines, the power to drive accessories is transmitted through high speed bevel gears in a chamber in the center of the engine. The windage power loss (WPL) associated with these gears makes a significant contribution to the overall heat...
