KEY FEATURES: Assists scientists, engineers and researchers in the development of a new high performance lubricantAm An essential review of the state of knowledge in tribochemistry. The first book published related to tribochemistry oils DESCRIPTION: This latest title takes a new and unconventional look at engine oil as a micellar system. It is the first book of its kind to focus on the tribochemistry of oils and is thus an essential resource to practicing scientists and engineers in the petroleum industry and to all interested in the development of a superior high performance lubricant. Guaranteeing its broad appeal the book gives an invaluable review of the state of knowledge in the rapidly growing area of tribochemistry. The concept of miscelles is clearly explained along their application to stimulate the quality of engine oil, improve fuel efficiency and maintain adequate wear protection formulation. This represents a fresh approach to the formation of anti-wear tribofilms. A new look at engine design trends is given further assisting engineers in the development of a superior lubricantOne of the primary forces of change in engine and transmission design is the rapidly growing need to protect the environment, driven by a growing need to protect public awareness of environmental issues. ... of two-cycle engines has a high priority at the three largest manufacturers, namely General Motors, Ford and Chrysler. ... The nation is essentially self-sufficient in all energy sources except for oil, and, to make up for it, the U.S. imports approximately 2/3 of the oil it uses. ... Chapter 7.
