Aims
After the course the student is able to,
 
Theory:
1.       Explain / describe the basics of friction and wear of dry and lubricated systems.
2.       Select the materials in contact as a function of the operational conditions.
3.       Select dry and lubricated contacts for high tech systems.
 
Practice
4.       Predict friction and load carrying capacity of (lubricated) contacts
5.       Evaluate if a construction, from a tribological point of view, is properly designed.
 
The overall course aim is to apply some basics of mechanics, fluid dynamics and material science  to the field of tribology (friction, wear and lubrication).



 
Content
The course Tribology gives a general overview of tribology for dry and lubricated systems. The basic friction laws for the dry contact situation are explained as well as the four main wear mechanisms (fatigue, adhesive-, abrasive- and corrosive-wear). Next, the two lubrication mechanisms (hydrodynamic and hydrostatic) are discussed with respect to film formation and load carrying capacity. The contents of the lectures are as given in the book “Advanced engineering design – lifetime performance and reliability”, ISBN 10 90 81040618. With the available Calculator on www.engineering-abc.com the students can practice their skills gained in the lectures.
The lectures closes with an assignment which results in a report that has to be defended during the oral exam.
