Abstract

Every Tribologist and Lubrication Engineer had to start somewhere and this webinar is just what they required to start the journey.  The basic understanding of lubrication requires a good foundation and this webinar will help to take the mystery out of the straightforward concepts of lubrication fundamentals such as:

  • Viscosity – when to be thin and when to be a little over weight
  • Friction – seems a little restrictive sometimes, but it can be overcome
  • Lubrication Regimes (Boundary, Mixed, Hydrodynamic, Elastohydrodynamic)
  • Stribeck Curve – it’s not a mystery, it’s simple to understand, and it’s valuable to know
  • Base Oils – just the simple facts
