Abstract : Characterization of lubricants, meant for application in counterformal contact situations (concentrated sliding contacts), is usually performed with standard tests, e.g. of the four-ball type. Results, thus produced, are of limited value, because of doubts, regarding correlation with practical performance data. In this respect the IRG(International Research Group) Transition Diagram method, developed by the cooperative efforts of eight different laboratories, probably stands a better chance of success. As an example, five high-performance lubricants i.e. three mineral oils, i.e. Amoco 300, Citgo C-5 and REO 203 and two synthetic oils, i.e. Mobil Jet II and Royco 555, were characterized with this method.
