High-Pressure Rheology for Quantitative Elastohydrodynamics, Second Edition, contains updated sections on scaling laws and thermal effects, including new sections on the importance of the pressure dependence of viscosity, the role of the localization limit of stress, and new material on the shear dependence of viscosity and temperature dependence viscosity. Since publication of the original edition, the experimental methods, the resulting property data and new correlations have resulted in a revolution in understanding of the mechanisms of film formation and the mechanical dissipation.
- Describes lubricant rheology and dependence of lubricant viscosity and density on pressure and temperature
- Provides a detailed description of the relationship of lubricant properties on pressure, temperature and shear stress
- Includes data for many more liquids, including the recently characterized reference liquids
