IN recent experimental investigations of the lubrication at heavily stressed contacts, particular attention has been paid to measurements of the thickness of the lubricant film which, between gear teeth, is typically about 1µ. Using steel cylinders nominally in line or point contact the thickness of the film has been deduced from measurements of electrical capacity1,2 or from determination of the penetration through the gap of a well-collimated and carefully aligned beam of X-rays3. The purpose… CONTINUE READING
