Gears are widely used in many practical engineering to transmit torque. In the process of meshing, contact stress will be produced which causes pitting. Shock becomes more and more serious with the increase of pitting and the probability of failure of meshing gears increases. Contact stress analysis is necessary and important to increase the reliability of gear transmission. In this paper, a fuzzy Hertz approximate optimization method and finite element method are used to deal with a practical engineering problem.
