ISO 6336-2:2006 specifies the fundamental formulas for use in the determination of the surface load capacity of cylindrical gears with involute external or internal teeth. It includes formulas for all influences on surface durability for which quantitative assessments can be made. It applies primarily to oil-lubricated transmissions, but can also be used to obtain approximate values for (slow-running) grease-lubricated transmissions, as long as sufficient lubricant is present in the mesh at all times.
