Lubricant Behavior During Gear Rotation

An experiment to see how lubricating oil enters the meshing area during gear rotation. The oil is colored red for easy visualization. If the gear is rotating fast, it is blown off the gear surface. If it is rotating slow, it goes in. Observing the behavior of the lubricating oil is useful for gear research and development.
