aviation oils, rheological properties, lubrication mode, effective viscosity, shear rate gradient


The study proposes a diagnostic control method for assessing the quality of commercial batches of hydraulic oils based on the kinetics of changes in the thickness of lubricating layers, shear stresses of the lubricating material, and effective viscosity in tribotechnical contact. Timely and high-quality tribomonitoring of lubricants provides a perspective on their rational use and reduced wear of equipment parts. The developed methodology simulates the operation of gears in rolling conditions with a slip of 30% using a roller analogy. Samples of AMG-10 oil from two manufacturers were analyzed. For "Bora B" AMG-10 oil (sample 1) with gradients of the sliding speed of the lubricating layer in contact from 5.63·103 to 5.73·105 с-1, the effective viscosity is set at the level of 4249 and 5039 Pa·s at a bulk oil temperature of 20 and 100 oС, respectively, which indicates the resistance of oil components to destruction under conditions of increasing shear rate gradient. For AMG-10 oil (sample 2), the effective contact viscosity decreases by 1.53 times both at an oil temperature of 20 oС and at 100 oС and is 2764 Pa·s (at 20 oС) and 3309 Pa·s (at 100 oС), which indicates the destruction of the components of the lubricant. For "Bora B" AMG-10 oil, effective lubricating properties have been established both during the start-up period and at maximum revolutions in conditions of rolling with slipping. It was shown that at start-up, regardless of the temperature of the lubricant, the mixed lubrication mode dominates. At the maximum revolutions of the tested samples, the hydrodynamic lubrication mode dominates, which indicates the effective lubricating properties of the Bora B AMG-10 oil. According to the kinetics of changes in the rheological parameters of oils, it was established that the resistance of the lubricant's components to mechano-thermal destruction under non-stationary lubrication conditions contributes to the effective formation of a lubricating layer in contact with a high bearing capacity
