Rheology and Tribology of Engine Oils presents current research being performed in industrial and academic institutions. Contents include: rheological characterization of lubricant-methanol-water emulsions; influence of fullerenes on mineral oil properties; thin film theory for the power law fluid with application to piston ring lubrication; effect of shear thinning on cavitation in lubricant films; viscosity of perfluoropolyether lubricants: influence of structure, chain dimensions and molecular interactions; a journal bearing simulator bench test for ranking load-bearing capacity: a theoretical analysis; pressure-temperature-viscosity and elastohydrodynamic characteristics of two perfluoropolyalkylether fluids; and vapor delivered lubrication of diesel engines -- uncooled single cylinder engine test.
