Internal combustion engines require engine oils to operate properly as the oils provide the necessary lubrication to overcome friction and wear between moving engine parts. In this presentation, I will focus on the fundamental issues concerning friction and wear that occur in internal combustion engines.
How lubrication works under different conditions
Different modes of wear
Examples of wear-induced damage to engine hardware
Effects on engine performance due to poor lubrication
Discussion on lubricant selection
