Abstract:

laterOne method to improve reliability, readiness, and survivability of military hardware operating under harsh environmental conditions is reducing frictional loss and wear within equipment. A phase I effort is proposed to prepare compositions of novel nanomaterials and ionic liquid blends with current lubricating oils and assess their potential utility as nanofluid lubricants. A systematic screening of the blends will allow for down selection of promising fluids for further testing of their physical properties and further consideration of their cost and environmental impacts. Such improvements may provide reduction in maintenance costs by reduction of wear and also a reduction of weight associated with thermal management systems.
