Abstract

Dr D. C. EVANS looks at some of the options open in selecting a plain‐bearing arrangement designed to operate where an external lubricant supply cannot be incorporated for reasons of environment or expediency.

Abstract

Swansea carry on … THE University College of Swansea has decided that the Swansea Tribology Centre will continue after the initial DTI support ends, which is this month. This means that the Centre must cover its costs by means of income from industry and so must, in fact, provide an independent consultancy service on tribology. Swansea will of course say that as far as its consultancy work is concerned it has always been independent, but now that it must stand on its own feet financially, it must see that it continues to build a reputation for results like any other competitive independent business undertaking.

Abstract

WHILST reinforced plastics materials have been employed for bearing surfaces on an ever increasing scale for over thirty years, it is only in the past decade or so that they have really been accepted as engineering materials in their own right and not as just substitutes for metals.

Abstract

Ball bearings engineered from polymer resins offer, it is stated, significant advantages over their steel counter‐parts in engineering design, especially where moderate running speeds and loadings are experienced. A polymer bearing also gives a far superior performance than can be achieved with a plastics bush for the same duty, yet it costs only a few pence more.

Abstract

THE JET AGE of today and the Space Age of tomorrow would not be possible without the recent developments in specialised lubricants that have increased the capabilities of fluids, greases, solid films, plastics, ceramics and other specialised lubricating agents. The present and potential use in aeronautical and astronautical flight have imposed and will continue to levy requirements upon lubricants that were beyond the vision or imagination of the lubrication expert of a decade ago. This article does not intend to create the illusion that all our problems have been solved. Rather, it is intended to present the new concepts and capabilities of some of the present products and the potential of the new developments on the basis of knowledge gained through both actual use and through research and development efforts.

Abstract

No matter how good the theory or how well designed and made the product, in the end it is whether a bearing works or not that really matters. That is where practical experience is indispensable.

Abstract

IN the February 1956 issue of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING the Editor put forward the suggestion that the pressure cabins of civil aircraft might with advantage be made of reinforced plastics instead of aluminium alloy. He had in mind recent difficulties encountered in pressure cabin design, especially those arising from metal fatigue, or revealed as a result of fatigue investigations. Plastic materials, maintains the editor, may well lend themselves to pressure cabin construction and provide a means of overcoming many of the current difficulties of design.
