Improving the performance of internal combustion engines through lubricant engineering

Abstract:

Low friction lubricant development provides a worthwhile contribution to vehicle CO2 emission reduction. Conventional low friction lubricant development focuses on empirical processes using out dated engine technology and old test methods. This strategy is inefficient and restricts the lubricant's potential. A new method proposed in the present research combines tribological simulations with rig, engine and vehicle tests. This approach provides insights undocumented until now. T...
