Abstract

Bio-inspired lubrication has gained great interest among researchers due to the fact that there are several examples in nature where biomolecules can enhance lubrication and provide low friction and low wear properties. VTT is currently running two projects on bio-based lubrication ("New Bioinspired and Bio-based Solutions for Lubrication (NEWLUB)" and "Biomimetic Water Lubrication" (BIOWAL)) that aim to use biomolecules as lubricant additives to be used in industrial applications. Some results are very promising, but there is still lack of understanding of lubrication mechanisms. To understand how lubrication works on micro- and macroscale it is important to understand basic phenomena that occur in molecular level or in nanoscale. Technical University of Denmark (DTU) provided a great opportunity to study the lubrication mechanisms in more detail.
