Lubricating Grease: Experiments and Modeling of wall-bounded- and free-surface flows

Published: 22 January 2015

On 19 December Jinxia Li presented her doctoral thesis entitled Lubricating Grease: Experiments and Modeling of wall-bounded- and free-surface flows.

Jinxia has during her time at university been studying in detail how a grease will flow where there are various restrictions, and under different pressure gradients. This is very important knowledge when a bearing must be relubricated, ie that new grease is applied. As examples of the various restrictions to grease flow is narrow passages and seals that are found in almost all roller and ball bearings.
