This informative publication covers the most recent advances in lubricant tribology. Topics are organized by testing; friction and wear; rheology; and oil degration. Contents include: fuel efficiency screening tests for automotive engine oils; accurate element analysis of multigrade lubricating oils by ICP method: effect of viscosity modifiers; the possible role of surface tension in the reduction of top ring drag; surface and tribological characterization of coatings for friction and wear reduction; measurements of cylinder liner oil film thickness in a motored diesel engine; low temperature rheology of commercial base stocks; viscosity prediction for multigrade oils; comparative rheology of commercial viscosity modifier concentrates; the development of a thermo-oxidation engine oil simulation test (TEOST); and development of an on-board type oil deterioration system.
