Grease-lubricated plain bearings will operate with relatively low coefficients of friction and low lubricant consumption as shown by an experimental investigation on 3 1/2-in.-diam bearings. Formation of a “rheodynamic” load-carrying film; evidence of thixotropic behavior; and effects of variation of load, speed, clearance, feed rate, and lubricant properties are demonstrated.
