  1. 1. Bronze-Steel Friction Characteristics under the Lubrication of Modified Water/Glycerol Mixtures

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Karim Hamouda; [2017]
    Keywords : Glycerol; glycerol additives; stick-slip; shudder; friction modifiers;

    Abstract : Increasing environmental awareness has driven a lot of research to look into various environmentally friendly lubricants which can replace more conventional mineral oil based lubricants. This is true in particular for marine and hydropower applications where the risk of lubricant leakage can be damaging to the local environment. READ MORE

  2. 2. Measuring volatile nicotine from electronic cigarettes
