Abstract
The purpose of the project is to formulate and develop advanced nano-lubricant/fluid and demonstrate their potential to reduce gear erosion wear in the Army missile weapon systems. The tribological performance of the developed nano-lubricant fluid will determined and compared with that of the currently used lubricant. Based on the performance evaluation, advanced nano-lubricant/fluid systems and processes will be identified for further development in Phase II.
