A method is presented that allows the accurate measurement of the tooth pair stiffness of a pair of spur gears. The method reveals the stiffness behaviour throughout the full length of the normal path of contact and also into the extended contact region when tooth corner contact occurs. The method makes use of the properties of transmission error plots for mean and alternating components over a range of tooth loads (Harris maps). It avoids the usual problem when measuring tooth deflections that deflections of other test rig components are difficult to eliminate. Also included are predicted Harris maps for a pair of high contact ratio spur gears, showing the effects of various simplifying assumptions, together with a measured map.
