Applied Tribology in the Oil-Film Bearings

  • Hung Nguyen-SchäferEmail author


Tribology is derived from the Greek word tribos, which means rubbing. It deals with the tribological phenomena, such as lubrication, friction, and wears in the moving parts. It becomes more and more important in the turbochargers in terms of synthetic lubricating oils, friction reduction, adhesion and abrasion friction, and wear protection of the oil-film bearings including radial and thrust bearings.
