ASTM WK40223

    Work Item: ASTM WK40223 - Revision of G182 - 06 Standard Test Method for Determination of the Breakaway Friction Characteristics of Rolling Element Bearings

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: G182 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: G02.50 | Committee G02 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    This test is still valid and useful and used. It is my recommendation that it be reapproved with the editorial revision that the definition for rolling be deleted. It contains an error (wrong use of the wordrevolute) and there was much discussion at pervious terminology meetings as to whether G2 should define rolling since everybody knows what rolling is.
