To present methods which, according to the consensus of the aviation propulsion community represented by SAE Committee E-34, allow the continued assessment of load carrying capacity of current chemistry products during periods of limited or nonavailability of previously used standardized methods.
The subject document describes temporary methods to assess the load carrying capacity methods of turbine oils at the time. Efforts within E-34 Propulsion Lubricants committee to further develop these methods is underway. Therefore, this document is being stabilized as is. No further reviews for currency are planned.
