How to employ Stribeck curves for fast screening of lubricated tribo systems (09:00-09:30)


Selection of lubricants for a particular application depends upon various factors ranging from the contact pressure, motion/speed profiles, temperature, etc. This process is quite crucial for the overall performance of a machine or component.
Critical characteristics of a lubricant are its speed-dependent potential to form hydrodynamic films, which separate the mating surfaces from each other and protect them from wear. But also the properties at conditions with no film formed determine the overall performance of a tribological contact.
Stribeck curves pose a measurement method to evaluate and efficiently screen the performance of lubricated tribo-systems.  This webinar will introduce how to facilitate Stribeck curves and how to interpret the measuring results.
