... and low-power microscope examination of the spline of the shaft showed evidence of fretting wear debris; similar wear was observed on the splines of the mating bevel gear. It was concluded that the splines had failed by severe fretting wear. Fretting damage was also observed on the shaft face adjacent...

...Abstract Abstract The horizontal cross-travel shaft on a derrick failed after two years of service. The shaft was required to be made of 4140 steel quenched to a hardness of 302 to 352 HRB. The shaft was found to have fractured approximately 13 mm from the change in section between the splined...
