Engine Tribology & Lubrication

Tribology is the science and engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion. It includes the study and application of the principles of friction, lubrication and wear. Tribology is highly interdisciplinary. It draws on many academic fields, including physics, chemistry, materials science, mathematics, biology and engineering.In total, ~23% of the world's energy consumption originates from tribological contacts. Of that, 20% is to overcome friction and 3% to remanufacture worn parts and spare equipment due to wear and wear-related.For DAF engine, well designed and maintained tribologically lubricated interfaces means high standard fuel economy and high reliability (wear related) of the system for customers.Engine Lubricated Interface developmentDuring this internship you will have chance to get familiar with DAF product creation process by participating the following development activities:- Perform benchmarking activities and learn from competitors' solutions- Translate end customer (truck driver & buyer) value (fuel economy, reliability, R&M, etc) into fundamental design (tribology, material, mechanics, oil additives, manufacturing process) features- Understand and provide feedback on DAF technical requirement such as PDB, FRS, FDS, TRS, ETS- Identify quality & reliability improvement opportunitiesSpecific component and technical tasks will be selected based on the specific technical background of the student and the dynamically changing priorities of running project contents, to be further defined during starting phase of this internship.
