COMPRESSOR

A device which converts mechanical force and motion into pneumatic flow power.

JOURNAL BEARING

A sliding type of bearing having either rotating or oscillatory motion and in conjunction with which a journal operates. In a full or sleeve type journal bearing, the bearing surface is 360° in extent. In a partial bearing, the bearing surface is less than 360° in extent, i.e., 150°, 120°, etc.

COLD CRANKING SIMULATOR

An intermediate shear rate viscometer that predicts the ability of an oil to permit a satisfactory cranking speed to be developed in a cold engine. (CCS)

ACCELERATION

The rate of change of velocity, as a function of time. Expressed in m/s2.

ACCELERATION

The time rate of change of velocity; i.e., the derivative of velocity; with respect to time.

HARMONIC MOTION

The projection of circular motion on a diameter of the circle of such motion. Simple harmonic motion is produced if the circular motion is of constant speed. The combination of two or more simple harmonic motions results in compound harmonic motion.

HORIZONTAL EARTH RATE

The rate at which the spin axis of a gyroscope must be tilted about the horizontal axi

DUNNAGE

Cushioning material placed among cargo to prevent their motion

FILTER LIFE TEST

A type of filter capacity test in which a clogging contaminant is added to the influent of a filter, under specified test conditions, to produce a given rise in pressure drop across the filter or until a specified reduction of flow is reached. Filter life may be expressed as test time required to reach terminal conditions at a specified contaminant addition rate.

HYDRODYNAMIC LUBRICATION

A system of lubrication in which the shape and relative motion of the sliding surfaces causes the formation of a fluid film having sufficient pressure to separate the surfaces.
