Abstract:

The present program was concerned with the devel opment of lubricant screening tests and the evaluation of candidate lubricants for advanced gas turbine engines for the commercial supersonic transport. In an effort to develop the required lubricant screening tests, strong reliance was placed on the experience gained from lubricant screening tests develofor the past and cur rent generations of gas turbine engines, but with due recognition of future requirements. These considerations led to the decision to develop the following tests lubricant oxidation-corrosion test lubricant deposits and degradation test gear load-carrying capacity test and rolling contact fatigue test.
