Participants will learn:
  • Techniques of applied design of tribological components including mechanisms, bearings and gears
  • How to define and apply criteria for the selection of designs
  • How to define and apply criteria for the selection of materials
  • How theories of lubrication affect critical design and manufacturing decisions
  • Qualification test procedures including thermal vacuum testing of mechanisms
The course includes training in:
  • Solid Lubricants including molybdenum disulphide, thin lead films and self lubricating bearing cages
  • Fluid Lubricants including Pennzane and Fomblin Z25
  • Space qualified materials including structural materials, vacuum compatibility and use of heritage data
Participants will receive copies of the lecture notes and the Space Tribology Handbook on
CD-ROM.

As with previous years the course will be held on the 2 days prior to the ESMATS Symposium so that delegates can amalgamate attendance of this course with attendance at the ESMATS Symposium. The course will held in the the Theater DeMuze in Noordwijk/Zee Wantveld where ESMATS 2013 will be held.
