Automotive Lubricants and Testing

Editor(s): Simon C. Tung, George E. Totten

Thirty chapters provide a comprehensive overview of various lubrication aspects of a typical powertrain system including the engine, transmission, driveline, chassis, and other components. The manual addresses major issues and current development status of automotive lubricant test methods.

Topics also cover advanced lubrication and tribochemistry of the powertrain system, such as diesel fuel lubrication, specialized automotive lubricant testing development, filtration testing of automotive lubricants, lubrication of constant velocity joints, and biodegradable automotive lubricants.

Major chapters cover:
• Automotive tribology systems
• Automotive engine lubricant tests and specifications
• Transmission fluids
• Gear oils and grease
• Automotive bench test simulation and tribological bench tests
• Tribological simulation, wear tests, and laboratory characterization
• Designing for wear life and frictional performance for automotive applications
• Surface analysis and tribochemistry of automotive engine components
• Problems and opportunities regarding the lubrication of modern automotive engines
• Overview and future trends of automotive lubricants and testing
