Abstract

The purpose of this project is to analyse three different types of common engine lubricant in the market for the UTeM Formula Varsity Car. The analysis will be performed by using a Four-Ball Tester Extreme Pressure (EP) and Wear Preventative (WP) machine which is functions as a way to determine the relative wear-preventing properties of lubricating fluids in rolling and sliding applications. The project will be focused on the wear preventing aspect of the lubricant that would affect the performance of the lubricant. Three common engine lubricant has been chosen for this project which has been denoted in the thesis as types A, B, C. The lubricants will be compared from the results obtained from the Four-Ball Tester machine analysis graphs and the wear scar analysis done by using a CCD Microscope machine. Three of the lubricants are to be tested against wear and based on the performance, the best lubricant is chosen to continue with the experiment with added additives to evaluate whether the performance of the lubricant in terms of wear and friction reduction could be improved. Results from the experiment shows that the coefficient of friction increases in the tests as more load is applied it is also demonstrated that it is directly proportional between the average wear scar diameter and volume loss of the material. Additives will enhance the performance however, the effective concentration for this project is 2% as more will cause degradation in anti-wear performance.
