This class is intended for users with previous experience or users who participate in this free-of-charge Introduction Training.

The following topics will be covered during this 1-day course:

Surface Friction Measurement and Oil Properties:

  • Definition of oil viscosity as a function of temperature, shear rate and fitting to experimental measurements
  • Surface roughness and friction definition – Generation of roughness and friction coefficient input based on profilometer measurements or surface finish information

Cylinder Friction:

  • Cylinder liner geometric definition (with distortion) and temperature definition
  • Ring(s) surface profile definition, tension and gap
  • Skirt geometric definition (with distortion) for major and minor thrust pads

Journal Bearings and Seals:

  • Levels of fidelity of bearing modeling
  • Definition of journal and bearing geometry, feed holes and grooves and boundary conditions
  • Modeling of crankshaft seals

Valvetrain and Timing Drive Friction Prediction:

  • Cam Follower Tribology
  • Hertzian and non-Hertzian contact stress analysis
  • Timing Chain and Belt Friction models

If time permits, extra and more specialized topics may be covered.  The topics will be selected by the participants.  Some possible topics are: Integrated Simulations, Blow-by, DOE and Optimization setup etc.

Due to the limited room capacity, seats will be allocated preferentially to commercial customers.
