Share |

The 2019 Lube & Wear course information will be available soon. Please check back soon for more information.


Lubrication & Wear: Advanced Concepts 

Join Dr. Tim Ovaert, Chuck Coe and Vern Wedeven for the 2018 Lubrication & Wear course at Notre Dame University


The Lubrication & Wear course has sold out. Please email Martin Jimenez ( to join the wait list.


Course Information 

The field of lubrication and wear continues to evolve and this course introduces the relevant phenomena pertaining to surface topography measurement and analysis, analyzing surfaces in contact, lubrication films, and friction appropriate to rolling element bearings, sliding machine elements, and mechanical systems. The course bridges the gap between component design and component failure as a result of relative motion between surfaces in contact.

This course is designed for engineers and scientists in the rolling element bearing and power transmission industries who desire a more fundamental knowledge of the lubrication, friction and wear sciences. Course participants will enhance understanding of:
  • Regimes of Lubrication
  • 2-D and 3-D Surface Topographical Characterization
  • 2-D and 3-D Contact Mechanics
  • Surface and Subsurface Stress Analysis
  • Asperity Contact Models
  • 2-D and 3-D Elastohydrodynamic Lubrication (EHL)
  • Transient and Micro-EHL
  • Mixed Lubrication
  • Grease Lubrication
  • Applications in Rolling Element Bearing Design
  • Failure Modes and Materials in Bearing Lubrication

 Course Registration Includes

  • Continental Breakfast
  • Morning and Afternoon snacks
  • Lunch
  • Lube & Wear Course binder
