Friction is a force that resists relative motion between two surfaces in contact. Friction can be beneficial, such as when attempting to plant your feet to move a heavy object. However, friction in rotating equipment can be detrimental. Excessive friction causes premature wear and generates heat, which results in wasted energy.

In this course, you will learn the basics of friction and wear and how lubrication is used to reduce friction in common applications.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Fundamentals of friction, including the laws of friction for sliding, rolling and lubricated surfaces
  • Differences between static and kinetic friction and the relationship between friction, pressure and velocity
  • Types of wear including abrasive, adhesive, pitting and corrosive
  • Boundary lubrication and the use of antiwear agents
  • Principles of hydrodynamic lubrication applied to thrust bearings and journal bearings
  • The use of extreme pressure lubricants
  • Principles of elastohydrodynamic lubrication

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 10 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
