Abstract:

The objective of the Navy Oil Analysis Program is to determine the feasibility of identifying wear and failure modes in oil wetted systems by oil analysis evaluation and detection techniques. As part of this effort the NAPTC conducted gear bench tests which simulated wear, scuffingscoring, and fatigue failure modes in typical mechanical gearing systems. This report presents oil sampling identificationspectrometric oil analysis results and related test data including failure criteria which will be necessary in the total program. Author
