Engineering and DesignLUBRICANTS AND HYDRAULIC FLUIDS
1. Purpose.
 
This manual provides guidance on lubricants and hydraulic fluids to engineering,operations, maintenance, and construction personnel and other individuals responsible for the U.S. ArmyCorps of Engineers (USACE) civil works equipment.
2. Applicability.
This manual applies to all USACE commands having civil works responsibility.
3. Discussion.
This manual is intended to be a practical guide to lubrication with enough technicaldetail to allow personnel to recognize and easily discern differences in performance properties specified inmanufacturers’ product literature so that the proper lubricant for a particular application is selected. Itdescribes basic characteristic properties of oils, hydraulic fluids, greases, solid lubricants, environmentallyacceptable lubricants, and their additives. It examines the mechanics of hydrodynamic, boundary, extremepressure, and elastohydrodynamic lubrication to protect against surface deterioration. Separate chaptersare devoted to lubricant specification and selection, and requirements of lubricants for equipment currentlyin use at USACE civil works facilities. Because conscientious adherence to lubrication schedules is thebest prescription for longevity of component parts, operation and maintenance considerations are alsoaddressed.
4. Distribution Statement.
Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited.FOR THE COMMANDER:2 AppendicesALBERT J. GENETTI, JR.(See Table of Contents)Major General, USAChief of Staff
