Based on the experimental results, earlier work presented a first attempt at the statistical modelling of the friction and wear valves and seals of rocket engines must withstand. Available friction coefficients and wear rates (as defined in Archard’s equation) were fitted against two independent variables : sliding speed and contact pressure. The computations yielded second-degree polynomials and the corresponding response surfaces. However, it was felt that a statistical design of experiments to reduce the test activities and maximise result quality was needed. A detailed analysis led to the choice of Doehlert’s approach, with a contribution of the general equiradial design. Testing was performed with a pin-on-disk tribometer capable of working at room temperature (RT) and under liquid nitrogen (at 77 K). The results pertaining to two examples are discussed. Statistical as well as practical aspects of the work performed and consequences of the results are covered : based on correlation factors and other mathematical indicators, on the general profile of the response surfaces and on requirements for use, the tribological properties of the considered materials are illustrated, leading to their eventual usefulness in cryotechnic equipment and space applications.

In the present study, modifications of the lubricating properties of vegetable oils, which had undergone accelerated ageing, were quantified, using the optical EHD method. Each oil sample was examined in an optical viscometer in order to measure film thickness vs. contact speed. From these results the pressure—viscosity coefficient was calculated, by adjusting theoretical values. The modifications were related to molecular changes, which were observed with various tools of chemical analysis, including gel permeation chromatography (GPC). [less ▲]

n this paper, we compare the viscosimetric and tribological properties of some vegetable oils and one synthetic ester with a pure mineral oil. The viscosimetric characteristics of lubricants show that both vegetable oils and ester have a higher viscosity index than mineral oil. The test results show that all tested oils have a somewhat dilatant behaviour.The oiliness, antiwear and extreme pressure properties of lubricants have been studied respectively with a Stribeck machine and a four-ball machine. We have noted the following: On the four-ball machine, extreme pressure results expressed in terms of pressure wear index and mean hertz load show that the higher performance is obtained with the vegetable oils. Extreme pressure results expressed in terms of weld load, do not show a big difference between the tested oils. Antiwear results expressed in terms of wear scar show that die highest performances are obtained with vegetable oils. On the Stribeck machine, oiliness results expressed in terms of friction coefficient indicate that: in the regime of fluid lubrication, tested oils have me same behaviour; in die boundary lubrication regime, both vegetable oils and synthetic, ester have a better response uian mineral oil.
