Influence of load and oil viscosity on reference speed

When load or viscosity values higher than the reference values are applied, the frictional resistance increases and the reference speed should be adjusted. Conversely, lower viscosity or load values can enable higher speeds.
The influence of load and kinematic viscosity on the reference speed can be estimated from the diagrams referenced in the following for:
