Abstract : A rolling disc apparatus has been designed and built. Tractions between two crown discs lubricated with 5P4E polyphenyl ether have been measured as function of slip rate over a range of Hertz pressure (80,000-140,000 psi), rolling speeds (900-1820 ips), and temperatures (175 F - 215 F). Comparisons are made between measured tractions, Battelle data, and various analytical predictions. (Author)
