Lubrication & Wear: Advanced Concepts - Designed for engineers and scientists in the rolling element bearing, gear, and power transmission industries who desire a more fundamental knowledge of component-relevant topics in the field of tribology. The science behind lubrication and wear continues to evolve. This course introduces attendees to important terminology; surface topography measurement, characterization, and application; the mechanics of surfaces in contact; the development of lubricant films; grease lubrication; and failure of rolling element bearings and mechanical components in motion. The purpose of this course is to bridge the gap between component design and component failure, as a result of relative motion between surfaces in contact.
Advanced Concepts in Lubrication and Wear will cover the following topics:
Dr. Tim Ovaert
University of Notre Dame
Grease Technology Solutions, LLC
Lavern (Vern) D. Wedeven
Wedeven Associates, Inc.
