Engine Bearing

The Engine Bearing (Main Bearing) The internal combustion engine (piston engine) currently is still the most common engine used in automotive indutstry, even though the electric vehicles using electric vehicles are getting rapidly popular. Combustion […]

Friction Coefficient
Laws of Friction

1. Introduction: Friction is the force that prevents layers of fluid, surfaces of solids and material components sliding against one another. The force which resists the relative lateral movement between two solid contacting surfaces is […]

galled specimen
Galling

What is galling? Severe types of adhesive wear are often called galling, scuffing, welding or smearing, although these terms are sometimes used loosely to describe other types of wear. In metal-to-metal wear tests, high stresses […]

Four Ball Tester

What is a Four Ball Tester? Oil lubrication and lubrication technologies are essential in reducing friction and wear losses in machines. The key in efficiency of the frictional system is a lubricant (grease, oil, solid […]

Pin on disc
Pin on Disk Test

What is a Pin on Disk Test? Friction and wear (typically wear rates and wear resistance) characterization of materials is typically performed using various types of tribometers, while pin on disk test being probably one […]

Nanotribology

What is Nanotribology? Nanotribology or molecular tribology is one of the most significant components of tribology which is concerned with atomic and molecular interaction at a nanoscale, occurring upon the frictional contact of materials or lubrication. […]

Triboluminescence
Triboluminescence

What is Triboluminescence? Triboluminescence is tribology phenomenon resulting in the generation of light through creating any frictional interaction between the materials. The term for this phenomenon comes from a combination of the greek word for […]

Triboelectricity
Triboelectricity

What is triboelectricity? Triboelectricity refers to the electrification of dissimilar objects or materials occurred due to the collision resulting in the phenomenal flow of electrons from one material to other balancing the potential difference. The […]
