Lubricant Rheology using Molecular Dynamics Simulations

Advanced Lubrication - Gözdenur Toraman

In Thermo-Elasto-Hydrodynamic Lubrication (TEHL), lubricants can experience extreme pressures, very high shear rates and high temperatures. These state variables, heavily influence the rheological properties of the lubricants due to intensified interaction between molecules. As it is very difficult to perform experiments at extreme presssures and shear rates, the goal of this project is to use Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations for the investigation of complex nanoscale behaviour and to identify lubricant thermomechanical properties of lubricants in TEHL.
