Based on normal elasticity equation, this paper has developed the calculation formula of face gear’s contact strength, bend strength and scuffing strength. This work put forward an analytical calculation method of face gear’s bend strength and constructed the analytical model. The result of bend strength of face gear was obtained by computer simulation. Based on the research, we designed and manufactured a suit of face gearbox. According to the tooth space trait, a method was represented to test bending stress of tooth by arrangement of sensing device in the tip end of the tooth of face gear. A test-bed has been set up with which the bending stress of tooth of face gear was carried out. The results showed that the maximal bending stress of test is similar to the simulation results by ANSYS.
