Rheology (the study of fluid flow) and tribology (the study of friction, wear, and lubrication) are distinct fields of research but also highly interrelated disciplines. This book presents an international sampling of current rheology and tribology research being performed in industrial and academic laboratories. Contents include: simulation and observation of transient effects in elastohydrodynamic lubrication; tribological behavior of advanced material pairs of piston-ring/cylinder-liner; engine oil performance requirements and reformulation future gasoline engines and systems; some insights on mechanisms of oil consumption; study on 4-stroke engine oils for motorcycles: engine characteristics and new-specification oils, and steric repulsion of polymethacrylate layers.
