fluid film lubrication

fluid film lubrication
A type of lubrication in which the surfaces to be lubricated are separated by a substantial quantity of oil. The oil has the effect of keeping the two surfaces apart. Also called hydrodynamic lubrication.

Other topics include characterizing solid surfaces, adhesion, interface temperatures of sliding surfaces, fluid film lubrication, boundary lubrication and lubricants, friction and wear screening test methods, and components and applications.
If two mating surfaces during operating conditions are completely separated by lubricant film, such a type of lubrication is called fluid film lubrication.
He noted that the focus of the book is to improve the understanding of friction, lubrication and fatigue -- a fresh approach to tribology that links advances in applied mathematics with fundamental problems in tribology related to contact elasticity, fracture mechanics and fluid film lubrication.
Subsequent coverage encompasses adhesion, friction, interface temperature, fluid film lubrication, boundary lubrication, nanotribology, tribological components and applications, and green tribology and biomimetics, among other topics.
