New podcast on Powder Lubrication on the STLE Blog

Tribology of Interface Layers and Powder Lubrication
In the latest STLE podcast titled Tribology of Interface Layers and Powder Lubrication we interview Dr. Hooshang Heshmat, founder and technical director at Mohawk Innovation Technology Inc. Dr. Heshmat’s research has led to the creation of a niche area of study within the field of tribology and lubrication engineering known as powder lubrication or third body lubrication. As Dr. Heshmat explains in his book, Tribology of Interface Layers, powder lubrication can be used on applications in extreme environmental conditions.   He posits that “under appropriate geometries, powders behave in a similar way to liquid lubricants, thus generating a hydrodynamic like pressure, and consequently, a load capacity. “
