In order to make more progress in the gear performance, it is important to evaluate the gear dynamics more precisely, since gear is a main machine element in motion and power transmissions. For preventing the unexpected failure in mechanical systems, a large amount of work has been carried out based on a statistical model developed by Lundberg and Palmgren [1] with reliability models using the classical fatigue theory. However, most of these works did not consider the operating conditions of machine during the fatigue process.
