Systematic Investigations on the Influence of Viscosity Index Improvers on EHL-Film Thickness


This paper compares film thickness calculations to measurements taken using polymer containing oils in a twin disk machine. Results will show all polymer containing oils form lower film thicknesses than straight mineral oils of the same viscosity after shearing. A polymer correction factor is derived from test results improving the accuracy of film thickness calculation.
