Abstract:

The report describes techniques for experimental determination of the density and surface tension of synthetic turbine engine lubrications over the temperature range 100-400 deg F. Density values are reported for 22 lubricants, and surface tension values for 19 lubricants. Least-squares analysis reveals how density and surface tension vary with temperature according to a general formula. Parameters are tabulated for each of the fluids studied. The significance of density and surface tension data for lubrication engineering is discussed. Examples are given in which lubricant behavior can be explained and understood in terms of these properties.
