ABMA Hosts Lubrication and Wear: Advanced Concepts

ABMA hosted the 2012 Lubrication and Wear: Advanced Concepts Course on May 14-16 in Indianapolis, IN. The course took place on the nationally renowned Notre Dame campus and focused on the science of lubrication and wear along with its application in rolling element bearing design.

Instructor and Notre Dame Professor, Tim Ovaert, provided insight on component design and failures while also focusing on the latest lubrication technology that is applied to bearings. In 2011, two new instructors, Chuck Coe and Vern Wedeven, were added to the course which generated only positive feedback. They returned for 2012 and brought extensive experience in grease lubrication and failure modes and materials in bearing lubrication. These industry experts cannot be found anywhere else.

2012 Attendees also enhanced their understanding of:

• Regimes of Lubrication
• 2-D and 3-D Surface Topographical Characterization
• 2-D and 3-D Contact Mechanics
• Surface and Subsurface Stress Analysis
• Asperity Contact Models
• 2-D and 3-D Elastohydrodynamic Lubrication (EHL)
• Transient and Micro-EHL
• Mixed Lubrication
• Grease Lubrication
• Applications in Rolling Element Bearing Design

“By attending this course, I have the tools I need to help me evaluate conditions of the components I am working on and improve product life and performance.” – L&W Course Attendee

ABMA’s next course is the Advanced Concepts of Bearing Technology Course which will be held on June 18-21, 2012 at Duke University in Durham, NC. This course is specially designed for engineers with 2–3 years of work experience in bearings. By attending this course, you will be able to continue to expand your understanding of bearing theory and explore more advanced applications, allowing you to keep pace with constant advances in technology.
