Lubrication Systems for Aircraft Gas Turbine Engines (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Lubrication Systems for Aircraft Gas Turbine Engines presents a systematic approach to the lubrication systems of generic aircraft gas turbine engines. This topic requires a dedicated approach due to the constraints and requirements imposed by the propulsion system that include high sustained operating temperatures and speeds, mass constraints for the lubrication system and its ancillary components required for heat management,, filtering and sealing of the lubricant. These requirements are not discussed in tribology texts and the solution to such problems is often non-tribology related but heat transfer or two-phase flow related. The editors have collated vital research and methodology, and present the problems as well as current and potential future solutions to these problems in a systematic and consistent manner. The book is organized into eleven chapters covering the subject of lubrication in GTEs from systems to components. Advanced methods and tools used to evaluate the performance of lubrication systems are also introduced.

Lubrication Systems for Aircraft Gas Turbine Engines is addressed to researchers and graduate students who are interested in lubrication aspects related to aircraft GTEs as well as lubrication problems and solutions in general. It also represents an excellent reference for practicing engineers who work in lubrication systems and components from design to test and maintenance.
