This report describes a review of the Queensland
University of Technology’s Wire on Capstan test
apparatus. The purpose of the rig was to evaluate
the performance of liquid lubricants (particularly
those containing Friction Modifying Additives)
under the mixed and boundary lubrication
regimes. However, initial testing of various oils
caused confusion since fluid film lubrication was
indicated as being the predominant mode despite
large wear scars being noticed on the test wires.
Repeatability of results was an ongoing issue. It
was concluded that further modification of the rig
was required before it could be used for its
originally specified purpose of evaluating liquid
lubricants under the mixed and boundary
