Abstract:

A testing program has been developed, aimed at screening bearing materials and lubricants. The paramount objectives of this program are the establishment of specimen testing techniques and methods of data analysis. Both rolling and sliding tests will be conducted in test rigs which will operate at temperatures of -100, 1500, 2000 and 2500F. A total of eight ceramic and intermetallic materials will be initially screened. Several alternate test procedures are available in Phase II which could consider lubricants, other materials or new lots of the originally tested materials. Phase III will be a study of the selected materials when subjected to a vacuum environment and temperatures of -100, 1000 and 1500F. Author
