This special publication covers the "hot" topics facing the lubricating industry including fuel economy, environmental friendliness and cold weather performance. Hardware durability has, is and will forever be a major concern as well.
Partial contents include: low temperature dynamic rheometry of engine oils; shear stabilities of VI improvers; effects of lubricant composition on fuel efficiency in modern engines; oxidation and corrosion characteristics of vegetable-base biodegradable hydraulic oils; analysis of cam/roller follower friction and slippage in valve train systems; tribological analysis of the transfer pump vane/bore interface using a mixed lubrication model; and friction and scuffing resistance characteristics of piston materials as investigated by a reciprocating test rig.
