The primary objectives of this research program were to design, develop, and fabricate a traction measuring apparatus. As designed, this device makes use of small quantities of lubricant for traction evaluation. One candidate fluid was placed in the test rig for evaluation purposes during the project. A set of sample performance data was gathered on this fluid for testing of the rig. The constructed traction apparatus described in this report consists of a mechanical assembly and separate instrumentation panel. The mechanical assembly contains the drive motors two 10 H.P. units, the belted transmissions, the assembly shafting, and all the support structural hardware. The instrumentation panel is for controlling and monitoring the test operations. These two units can be placed separately for the convenience of testing. Author
