Abstract: Gear box performance is dependent on viscosity of lubricant oil and due to the thermal effect of heat generated in side of an oil span of gear box. Thus if we change properties of an oil, the performance of gear box does change. The effect on gear box performance will be studied by CFD Analysis. The equations of fluid mechanics which have been known for over a century are solvable only for a limited no. of flows. The known solutions are extremely useful in understanding fluid flow but rarely used directly in engineering analysis or design. CFD makes it possible to evaluate velocity, pressure, temperature, and species concentration of fluid flow throughout a solution domain, allowing the design to be optimized prior to the prototype phase.
