Abstract
CURRENT MIL-SPEC OXIDATION-CORROSION AND HIGH TEMPERATURE DEPOSITION TESTS DO NOT ADEQUATELY DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN THE PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS THAT MIL-SPEC LUBRICANTS EXPERIENCE IN OPERATIONAL ENGINES. A RAPID SIMPLE AND NOVEL TGA TEST METHOD COUPLED WITH DSC AND CHEMILUMINESCENCE TESTS ARE PROPOSED AS METHODS THAT COULD ACCURATELY SIMULATE THE BEHAVIOR OF MIL-SPEC LUBRICANTS IN THE COMBINED THERMAL-OXIDATIVE CORROSIVE ENVIRONMENT OF REAL ENGINES.
