  • Provides a comprehensive overview of current knowledge of lubrication, from both industry and academia
  • Enables understanding of fundamental data, underlying concepts and terminology relating to lubrication
  • Contributes to possible energy efficiency and material saving through articles on applications and theoretical research

The importance of lubricants in virtually all fields of the engineering industry is reflected by an increasing scientific research of the basic principles. Energy efficiency and material saving are just two core objectives of the employment of high-tech lubricants. The encyclopedia presents a comprehensive overview of the current state of knowledge in the realm of lubrication. All the aspects of fundamental data, underlying concepts and use cases, as well as theoretical research and last but not least terminology are covered in hundreds of essays and definitions, authored by experts in their respective fields, from industry and academic institutes.
