When you have finished the course you will be able to:
- derive and solve Reynolds equation
- use lubrication analysis for design purposes
- understand the influence of surface roughness on fluid film formation
- use 3D surface topography data for computational purposes
- understand the influence of surface roughness on boundary and mixed lubrication
- apply the knowledge and skill in order to simulate the lubrication of devices such as bearings and piston rings
- describe the current research in the field
