About the Project
The aim of this project will be to understand at a fundamental level how the chain drive and lubricant interact and how this affects frictional resistance and component wear. Support will be provided by chain and lubricant manufacturers.
Objectives will include studies of: chain component contact mechanics; lubricant entrainment into chain links, how a film forms and the role of lubricant composition; the effect of the tensioner on friction and the role of the lubricant; the effect of lubricant aging and contamination (e.g. soot) and the effects of using different chain component and tensioner materials and coatings.
