The tractive force between two slightly overlapped steel teeth exhibits a remarkably linear relationship with m.m.f. over a considerable range of variables. This occurs despite complex and varying patterns of field at the tooth surfaces, with local flux densities approaching 3 Tesla. A theoretical explanation is not readily available. Results of a computational investigation are reported and analytical approaches considered.
