Abstract : The report outlines progress and significant technical information obtained during the period September 1, 1970, through August 31, 1971, on basic research in dynamic sealing. Progress on construction of a dynamic test facility for mechanical face seals is reported. Results of a mathematical study, including inertia effects, of turbulent flow in the space between the faces of mechanical seals is reported. Results of theoretical and experimental studies of flow between porous discs is reported. (Author)
