The mathematical exhibiting of the vibrant analysis of gear has become essential with increased demand for high-speed mechanism. There are many numerical methods available for finding out the spur gear mesh stiffness like FEA methods and some numerical methods. In this present paper comparative study of effects of pitting shapes on spur gear mesh, stiffness is done using MATLAB Software. The pitting shapes considered are circular, Rectangular and Elliptical. Their effects on total deformation are also considered.
