Shows how algorithms developed from the basic principles of tribology can be used in a range of practical applications in mechanical devices and systems. Includes: bearings, gears, seals, clutches, brakes, tyres.The prime function of a piston assembly is to act as a seal and to counterbalance the action of fluid forces acting on the head of the piston. ... sealing action is achieved by the use of piston rings, although these are sometimes omitted in fast running hydraulic ... of view of developing the lubricating film and of carrying out its main function, which is to act as a sealing element. ... On the other hand, most of.the wear takes place in the vicinity of the top-dead-centre where the combination ofanbsp;...
