The current trend of fully electric and hybrid vehicles is revolutionizing the automotive industry and geared up the speed of rotatory components up to 70000 rpms and more. This lead the tribology on mechanical contacts of these components in to new zone of uncertainty. The influence of lubrication on these components requires a new description. The Tribomechanics will require different modelling assumptions from the existing ones. In this research opportunity, Tribomechanics of rotatory components such as gears and bearing will be experimentally correlated with their operating performance at very high speeds. Customized test rig will be designed and developed to perform the experiments. The outcome of the research will be used to highlight the key influencing tribomechanical properties and their behaviour on extremely high operating speeds.
