Abstract:

The use of nuclear physics methods in the research of waear allows the determination of quite small magnitudes of wear with quite high accuracy. The basis of the method in this work is the ability of a number of machine oils to scintillate when exposed to ionizing radiations in this connection they may be used in the preparation of liquid scintillators. The data shown in the report permits the making of a conclusion concerning the usefulness of this method of measuring wear for laboratory experiments on metals. The greatest advantages of the method are the great sensitivity of measurement of amounts of wear to about 0.00001 grams and the possibility of determining amount of wear while machine is running continuously, if a circulating system of lubrication is used on the points of friction.
