Current and Future Advances in Materials Development for Tribological Applications


Improvements in the tribological performance of engines can produce many benefits, the most important of which are

• A reduction in fuel and oil consumption;

• A reduction in maintenance requirements and no longer of service intervals;

• An increase in engine power output;

• Harmful exhaust emissions reduction; and

• Improved durability, reliability, and engine life.
