The development of research works in the field of synthesis and production of oils additives created conditions for the radical improving of quality of lubricating oils and made it possible to change these qualities in the required directions. The book covers the basic principles for determination of the necessary level of alloying, proceeding from an analysis of conditions of operation of the basic forms of industrial equipment and their requirements for the quality of additives for lubricating oils. For a rational organization of investigations in the field of selection of additives for the basic types of industrial equipment the machinery and mechanisms are classified by structural, kinematic, and dynamic factors. An analysis of efficiency based on maximum states of kinematic pairs makes it possible to determine the basic directions and required level of alloying under specific conditions. With the help of the complex of preliminary methods of sampling and tests of additives on laboratory machines, instruments, and installations, including an appraisal of functional properties of additives to oils antiwear, antipitting, antiburr properties, stability, corrosion, depolymerized stability and others, and also a complex of methods of bench tests, the appraisal of the most important operational qualities of additives is ensured.
