Fluid Engineering Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Lubrication Fundamentals

Second Edition
edited by D.M. Pirro


This newly revised and expanded reference discusses product basics, machine elements that require lubrication, methods of application, lubricant storage and handling, and lubricant conservation.

The Second Edition emphasizes the need for lubrication and careful lubricant selection!

Thoroughly updated and rewritten, this reference features:

  • A new chapter dedicated to the refining process, highlighting the latest technology and detailed descriptions of base stocks
  • Coverage of hydraulic systems, novel environmental lubricants, and currentlubricant testing methods
  • An examination of the latest lubrication requirements, petroleum crude selection, and product formulation and evaluation
  • And much more!

Outlining the emergence of higher performance-specialty application oils and greases, Lubrication Fundamentals 2nd Edition is a classic reference for mechanical, design, lubrication (tribology), automotive, gear and transmission, and structural engineers, and upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and continuing-education students in these disciplines.
