properties, physical properties
Basic and applied scientists and engineers from materials science and related fields explore tribological
aspects of metals, ceramics, polymers and their composites either as bulk material or as thick or thin layers.
As the dew-point of the gas gets lower, the friction coefficient and the energy transfer into the tribological
The exceptional tribological
properties of the material are said to lead to lower friction losses than with metal-to-metal pairings, and can thus have a positive influence on start/stop performance.
2] coatings against humidity is inadequate and the tribological

materials in future engine systems will be subjected to much higher thermal and mechanical loads and will be supplied with less effective but more environmentally sound lubricants in much reduced quantities.
The IP75 machine will support research projects that are intended to develop a materials property-based approach to tribological
coatings design and optimisation that focuses on the ratio and hardness and elastic modulus.
Then they evaluated the reformulated chocolate using rheological and tribological
analysis as well as sensory testing.
To address extreme tribological
conditions--such as poor lubrication, high pressure, low-to-zero velocity and rapid directional changes--the CMR (combined micro-relief) technology enables near-frictionless motion.
While a technically correct description would be two-body and three-body wear systems, for the purpose here tribological
wear can be thought of as involving clean, lubricated systems (engines, transmission, hydraulics) and abrasive wear can be referred to as the flow of abrasive particles (sand, crop, stones) across the mating surfaces and may involve high or low stress, erosion, corrosion, and/or impact events.
test conditions are listed in Table 1.
The internal lubricants also provide excellent tribological
properties with outstanding wear resistance.
