On completion of this course you will be able to:


  • understand the salient wear processes/mechanisms encountered indifferent lubrication regimes
  • understand the influence of contact conditions and tribochemistry on lubricated wear
  • understand the role of lubricants and additives in wear damage of different machine pairs
  • investigate and analyse the breakdown of lubrication films and consequent wear related failures of machine components
  • understand the role of lubricants contaminants on wear
  • design and perform tribological tests on different materials under lubricated conditions
