Cavitation is a phenomenon that occurs when a liquid is subjected to a pressure drop that causes its pressure to fall below its vapour pressure. This forms vapour bubbles within the fluid, collapsing as the […]


It is said that a contact operates under “starvation conditions” when an increase of oil supply at the contact would result in an increase of the film thickness at the contact. In other words, when […]

Lubricant Viscosity

What is lubricant viscosity? Viscosity is the resistance of a fluid to flow. When a fluid is flowing, the molecules comprising it experience friction due to the molecular interaction among them. It means that different […]
