Properties

  • Semester hours: 1.5
  • Credits: 2.25
  • Type: VO Lecture
  • Format: Hybrid

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to describe how lubricants (e.g. engine oils) change in their chemical and physical properties and how these properties are determined using analytical methods. The causes of lubricant degradation can be derived from analytical reports. Students can evaluate the possibilities and limitations of analytical methods (including sensors).

A visit to the Austrian Competence Centre for Tribology (AC2T research GmbH, https://www.ac2t.at/en/) in Wiener Neustadt as part of the lecture is offered.

Subject of course

Requirements and composition of lubricants; ageing/degradation mechanisms of lubricants during use; importance of condition monitoring; methods of condition monitoring (lubricant analysis using conventional, statistical and mass spectrometric methods), case studies for condition monitoring (interpretation of analytical reports, causes of machine damage, clarification of lubricant degradation mechanisms), trends in condition monitoring (online sensor systems).

Teaching methods

Introduction to lubricants and lubrication as well as use of analytical methods, among others: infrared spectroscopy, viscometry, elemental analysis, mass spectrometry. Application of knowledge through discussion of case studies.

Mode of examination

Oral
