Standard Test Method for Creep Measurement of Self-Lubricating Bushings
|Publication Date:||1 December 2004|
|ICS Code (Other fluid power system components):||23.100.99|
This test method determines the amount of creep exhibited by self-lubricating bushings exposed to a high load for an extended period of time.
This test method is designed to reproduce conditions typical of those encountered by trunnion bushings in hydropower applications and any other bushings subjected to high continuous loading and low-speed oscillating applications.
This test method is conducted on cut segments of the bushings.
The values given in SI units are to be regarded as the standard in all property and dimensional tables.
