Topics include: All aspects relating to engine oils for passenger car vehicles, including effects of additive/base oil on engine-out particulate and gaseous emissions, lubrication and oil consumption, friction, wear, as well as performance in the laboratory and under field service. All aspects relating to engine oils for heavy duty diesel vehicles, including new performance specifications, physical properties, additive/base oil effects and engine performance in the laboratory and under field service. Discussion of the critical performance attributes of lubricants and the most recent advances in the field of Rheology - the ability of lubricants to flow through mechanical systems and form lubricating films. Challenges facing the design and performance requirements of gear oils, manual and automatic transmission fluids, including continuously variable transmission fluids, are reviewed with additional consideration being given to how new hardware technologies impact the selection and formulation of additives and base oils, and on fundamental lubricant structure-property-performance relationships.
