An investigation into the contact behaviour & lubricant effects on cam wear performance using VALDYN.

It is possible to predict the asperity contact energy and plot its magnitude and locus relative to the cam geometry, based on fundamental properties of the fluid & system. The asperity contact energy distribution is directly comparable to wear distribution seen in fired engine testing. Detailed lubricant models can be incorporated. The results are sensitive to formulation changes. Solid basis to build wear models with anti-wear parameters.
