Grease Lubrication in Rolling Bearings

Author: Piet M. Lugt
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781118483978
Release Date: 2012-12-10
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The definitive book on the science of grease lubrication forroller and needle bearings in industrial and vehicleengineering. Grease Lubrication in Rolling Bearings provides anoverview of the existing knowledge on the various aspects of greaselubrication (including lubrication systems) and the state of theart models that exist today. The book reviews the physical andchemical aspects of grease lubrication, primarily directed towardslubrication of rolling bearings. The first part of the book covers grease composition, propertiesand rheology, including thermal and dynamics properties. Laterchapters cover the dynamics of greased bearings, including greaselife, bearing life, reliability and testing. The final chaptercovers lubrications systems – the systems that deliver greaseto the components requiring lubrication. Grease Lubrication in Rolling Bearings: Describes the underlying physical and chemical properties ofgrease. Discusses the effect of load, speed, temperature, bearinggeometry, bearing materials and grease type on bearing wear. Covers both bearing and grease performance, includingthermo-mechanical ageing and testing methodologies. It is intended for researchers and engineers in thepetro-chemical and bearing industry, industries related to this(e.g. wind turbine industry, automotive industry) and forapplication engineers. It will also be of interest for teaching inpost-graduate courses.

Advances in Integrated Design and Manufacturing in Mechanical Engineering

Author: Alan Bramley
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 1402034814
Release Date: 2005-07-05
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book presents a selection of papers related to the fifth edition of book further to the International Conference on Integrated Design and Manufacturing in Mechanical Engineering. This Conference has been organized within the framework of the activities of the AIP-PRIMECA network whose main scientific field is Integrated Design applied to both Mechanical Engineering and Productics. This network isorganized along the lines of a joint project: the evolution, in the field of training of Integrated Design in Mechanics and Productics, in quite close connection with the ever changing industrial needs over the past 20 years. It is in charge of promoting both exchanges of experience and know-how capitalisation. It has a paramount mission to fulfil, be it in the field of initial and continuous education, technological transfer and knowledge dissemination through strong links with research labs. For the second time, in fact, the IDMME Conference has been held abroad and, after Canada in 2000, the United Kingdom, more particularly Bath University, has been retained under the responsibility of Professor Alan Bramley, the Chairman of the Scientific Committee of the conference. The Scientific Committee members have selected all the lectures from com mplete papers, which is the guarantee for the Conference of quite an outstanding scientific level. After that, a new selection hasbeen carried out to retain the best publications, which establish in a book, a state-of-the-art analysis as regards Integrated Design and Manufacturing in the discipline of Mechanical Engineering.

Integrated Design and Manufacturing in Mechanical Engineering 98

Author: Jean-Louis Batoz
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 0792360249
Release Date: 1999-11-30
Genre: Business & Economics

This book is devoted to the optimization of product design and manufacturing. It contains selected and carefully composed articles based on presentations given at the IDMME conference, held in Compiègne University of Technology, France, in 1998. The authors are all involved in cutting-edge research in their respective fields of specialization. The integration of manufacturing constraints and their optimization in the design process is becoming more and more widespread in the development of mechanical products or systems. There is a clear industrial need for these kinds of methodologies. Important - but still unsolved - problems are related to the definition of design processes, the choice of optimal manufacturing processes, and their integration through coherent methodologies in adapted environments. The main topics addressed in this book are: analysis and optimization of mechanical parts and products (computational structural mechanics, optimum design of structures, finite element solvers, computer-aided geometry, modeling and synthesis of mechanisms); analysis and optimization for fabrication and manufacturing systems (modeling of forming processes, modeling for control and measurement, tolerancing and assembly in manufacturing, off-line programming and optimal parameters for machining, robotics, welding); methodological aspects of integrated design and manufacturing (new methodologies for design with constraints, communication tools, training applications, computer-aided manufacturing). Apart from giving a thorough theoretical background, a very important theme is the relation between research and industrial applications. The book is of interest for engineers, researchers and PhD students who are involved in the optimization of design and manufacturing processes.
