Thermal behavior prediction of Power Gearing Transmissions during preliminary design becomes necessary in order to optimize all the parts of mechanical systems (lubrication, cooling device dimensioning, static and dynamic stress resistance, etc.). It also reduces prototype tests. The thermal network method is used to model each technological element as a thermal finite element and a nonlinear system of equations is obtained. Geometric discretization is adapted to the scale of phenomenological observation and result requirements. As assumptions have to be made for the modeling of convection heat transfer and oil flow, experimental verifications are made. The influence of gear parameters, the effect of time varying running conditions, and oil flow defaults are then studied and discussed.
