EHL theory explains the generally successful operation of most types of gears. EHL has been less successful, however, in explaining and predicting failures of gear tooth contacts. There is an urgent need to develop a detailed understanding of “mixed” lubrication because this is the mode of lubrication in highly loaded gears. Greater emphasis needs to be given to initial plastic deformation in real, lubricated contacts.
