ASTM WK71194

    New Test Method for Measuring Friction and Wear Properties of Greases Under Rolling Motion Using SRV Test Machine

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.G0.04 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method includes a procedure for determining the coefficient of friction of greases and their ability to protect against wear under a rolling type of motion when subjected to high-frequency, linear oscillation. 1.2 Units--The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

    There exists so far no test method to determine the contribution of a lubricating grease to the coefficient of friction under rolling motion with associated high Hertzian contact stresses.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
