The article "Understanding Fluid Flow to Improve Lubrication Efficiency" appeared in the January/February 2004 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Excess lubricant supply in gearing contributes to power loss due to churning as well as the requirements of the lubrication system itself. Normally, a much larger amount of oil than required is used for cooling because so much of it is thrown away by centrifugal force. To lower the amount of lubricant required and reduce those losses, it is necessary to discover the ideal location of the supplying nozzle.
