This 1961–1962 lubrication digest reviews developments in fluid-film and rolling-element bearings, lubrication for bearings, gears, and automobiles; and covers basic work done in the general areas of friction and wear; elastohydrodynamic, boundary, and full film lubrication; and lubricant properties. The authors cover specific areas of lubrication literature and it is recommended that the reader, even the specialist, peruse related areas since the years of effort in this field have exposed more of the fundamentals; and the conclusious drawn, and the basic laws formulated in one area are important to all areas. It is wistfully hoped that the digest will disclose disproportionate effort because of funding and imbalance between empirical and theoretical work and spur corrective action.
