What does Wedeven Associates do?
Solving problems associated with the "tribology" of mechanical systems. Investigations, particularly specialized testing, into advanced lubricants and materials for the aerospace and automotive industries. We specialize in extreme environment bearing systems such as found in jet engines, rocket engines and advanced transmissions.
 
What is tribology?
The science and technology associated with contacting surfaces in motion
 
How does tribology apply to the "real world"?
Rotating machinery require shaft support systems that must accommodate high loads and shear between rapidly moving surfaces. To accomplish this with limited wear and long life requires certain hydrodynamic and chemical lubrication mechanisms. Materials and designs able to capture lubrication mechanisms, which are the lifeblood of major mechanical systems requiring reliability and performance.
 
Are there other companies who do the testing you do?
