Abstract:

The objective of this proposal is to demostrate the feasibility of using improved materials in the design of Final Drives in conjuction with improved lubricants, seal technology and gear technology that may result in a two (2)fold increase in reliability/durability. These gains can be used in a new design for military and commericial Final Drives to reduce overall unit size, weight and generation which can also be translated into improved efficiency. As an off shoot, a sensor alert system would be developed to detect temperature extremes and low lube levels. The development of gear technology will be evaluating alternative gear profiles, along with improved gear profile finishes/tolerances. In Phase I Loc will complete the prototype analysis of the above mentioned design features leading to the Phase II development of a tested unit in order to verify as anticipated (2)fold improvement in durability.
