AIR4978B - Temporary Methods for Assessing the Load Carrying Capacity of Aircraft Propulsion System Lubricating Oils

Details
Document Number: AIR4978B
Revision Number: B
Title
Temporary Methods for Assessing the Load Carrying Capacity of Aircraft Propulsion System Lubricating Oils
Scope
To present methods which, according to the consensus of the aviation propulsion community represented by SAE Committee E-34, allow the continued assessment of load carrying capacity of current chemistry products during periods of limited or nonavailability of previously used standardized methods.

The methods listed in this document are intended to provide a means of generating data which can be used as a guide for making decisions against the backdrop of load capacity databases (Ryder, IAE, FZG) and experiences available on chemically similar oils used for lubrication of aircraft propulsion and power drive systems.
