The influence of lubricant characteristics and operating parameters on the elastohydrodynamic lubrication in hypoid gears is investigated. The full thermal elastohydrodynamic analysis of lubrication is applied, based on the simultaneous solution of the Reynolds, elasticity, energy, and Laplace’s equations. The oil viscosity variation with respect to pressure and temperature and the density variation with respect to pressure are included. Using a computer algorithm, the influence of oil viscosity, pressure-viscosity and temperature-viscosity exponents, supplied oil temperature, speed and minimum oil film thickness on maximum oil film pressure and temperature, EHD load carrying capacity, and power losses in the oil film is investigated. The obtained results are presented and discussed.
