Grease Composition Influence on Friction & Starvation

Nowadays, grease lubrication is frequently used in rolling element applications such as bearings or constant velocity joints. The advantage of grease is to supply lubrication to the application without leaking thanks to its consistency. Nevertheless, starvation can occur leading to damage such as scuffing.
In the present study, starvation is analyzed using the Starvation Degree parameter through tests with different operating conditions and different types of greases.
