Photoelasticity has been used previously in experimental studies on gears. With the advantages of today's high capability of computing and software, photoelastic analysis can be combined with probabilistic analysis. The objective of this study was to perform an experimental study and probabilistic analysis of an asymmetric gear tooth. The uncertainty considered involves the material properties and geometry. In this study, different asymmetric gear tooth profiles were manufactured from PSM-5 photoelastic material. . This study shows that the combination of photoelastic experiments and probabilistic analyses may be an effective tool to study the advantages of asymmetric gear over the symmetric gears.
