Tribochemistry

Boundary Lubrication Boundary lubrication is the lubrication regime where the interface behaviour is dominated by chemical reactions that happen at the surfaces, tribofilm formation occurs, and the load is carried by the asperities. In the boundary lubrication regime the […]

Boundary Lubrication

What is Boundary Lubrication? Boundary lubrication describes situations where the applied load is primarily supported by contacting solid asperities, rather than a liquid lubricant. The boundary lubrication regime acts when the lambda ratio (the ratio […]
