  1. 1. Gear tribology : friction and surface topography

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers university of technology

    Author : Li Xiao; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Friction; Surface topography; Toughness; Lay; Gears; Power transmission; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The quest for energy efficiency leads to the development of highly efficient power transmissions for vehicles. Gears are some of the most rugged and durable torque transmitters among machine elements. Friction between sliding surfaces at gear teeth is one major source of power loss. READ MORE

  2. 2. Surface Force and Friction effects of adsorbed layers and surface topography

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Xiaoyan Liu; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Friction; nanotribology; surface forces; diblock copolymer; lipid; QCM-D; AFM; optical reflectometry; neutron reflectivity; X-ray reflectivity; micro-patterned surface; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Interfacial features of polymers are a complex, fascinating topic, and industrially very important. There is clearly a need to understand interactions between polymer layers as they can be used for controlling surface properties, colloidal stability and lubrication. The aim of my Ph. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Surface Topography of Cylinder Liners

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Zlate Dimkovski; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Materials science Surface engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap Ytbehandlingsteknik; Cylinder liner; Surface Roughness; Characterisation; Honing; Wear; Blechmantel; Groove Parameters; Quality Control; Flow Simulation;

    Abstract : The frictional losses, oil consumption and emissions in internal combustion engines are in great extent controlled by the cylinder liner surface topography. This emphasises the importance of: investigating the liner’s topography by objectively characterising it, investigating its effects on the tribological function to gain a better understanding and improving its manufacturing.
