Abstract : During the period 1 May - 31 July 1962 the effort was directed mainly toward three areas: gear load-carrying capacity, bearing fatigue, and lubricant oxidation-corrosion. In the gear loadcarrying capacity phase, considerable dynamic calibration of the test equipment and exploratory testing of lubricants were made at temperatures up to 500 F. The bearing fatigue phase was confined to design studies on a 3-ball/cone fatigue tester with a temperature capability of 800 F. The lubricant oxidation-corrosion phase encompassed further work on a 425 F oxidation-corrosion test procedure previously developed, design and construction of an oxidation-corrosion test apparatus with a temperature capability of 800 F, and exploratory testing of lubricants at 500 F.
