Is the homology of free loop space of lens spaces known?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Coefficients in $\mathbb Z$? – Fernando Muro Jun 20 '13 at 17:36
There is paper by Loday "Free loop space and homology". It establishes isomorphism between cohomology of free loop space $LX$ and Hochschild homology of an algebra of singular cochains $S^*X$. Maybe this will help. – Sasha Patotski Jun 20 '13 at 17:37
@Fernando Muro, Yes. But \mathbb{Q} coefficeints is also fine. @Sasha Patotski, thanks, I will have a look. – Murat Saglam Jun 21 '13 at 14:49
Do you mean for each component of the free loop space? The free loop space $LM$ has $p$ components for the lens space $M=L(p,q)$. – Somnath Basu Aug 30 '13 at 14:26
