Gas Turbine Engine Lubricants: Current Technical Review and Future Direction
The E-34 Committee identified the need to develop a reference document that explains scientific and engineering principles for qualification testing and approvals against AS 5780. This AIR attempts to describe the current state of the gas turbine lubricant performance testing, identify gaps in our understanding of the technology, and to help guide our future efforts.
The E-34 Committee identified the need to develop this document based inputs, questions, and concerns from gas turbine lubricant customers, equipment manufacturers, military authorities, and civil aviation authorities. The intent is to provide a clear and concise reference which will help rationalize and guide the direction of the committee into the future.
