Abstract:

The work performed under this program was concerned with applied research in the broad field of lubrication related to advanced primary and secondary aerospace propulsion systems. Two principal phases were investigated impact sensitivity of materials in contact with rocket propellants,and lubrication, friction and wear mechanisms in the cryogenic temperature range. The results of the LOX-Lubricant Impact Sensitivity Cooperative Program No. 3 for the ABMA impact tester are summarized. Investigations of the effect of different variables rebound height of the plummet, specimen cup material, etc. on impact sensitivity test results are described. In the cryogenic lubrication phase, friction and wear measurements are presented and discussed for oxidized copper, lead films, and organic films at temperatures down to -195 C. Author
