Zhang: With the help of the ILMA
scholarship, I am able to do tests on
thrust-bearing surfaces and lubricants
smoothly. Additionally, the scholarship
funded me to attend two conferences: the

72nd STLE conference in Atlanta and
the Sixth World Tribology Conference in
Beijing. During those two conferences, I
presented my work to the audiences, and
they gave me their feedback and opinions
to help me advance my research.
Compoundings: What is the overall
goal of your research highlighted in
your report for ILMA, An Analysis of
Surface Roughness and Its Influence on a
Thrust Bearing?

Zhang attending a Tigers football game, a popular
aspect of the culture at Auburn.

Zhang: The overall goal of my research
is to establish a new model that can
provide predictions of important
quantities of the thrust bearing, as
well as combine elasto-hydrodynamic
lubrication and rough surface contact
effects to analyze the effectiveness of
the fractal methods in characterizing
the thrust-bearing surface.
In general, this work helps improve
our understanding of how roughness
influences lubricated interfaces. The
study may help to determine more
precisely when a lubricated contact will
transition from the boundary regimen
to full film regimen. Meanwhile,

lubrication problems with roughness
are solved using the Reynolds equation,
and the influence of surface roughness
on lubricant behavior, shown in our
study, may give the industry a better
understanding of the rough-surface and
lubricant relationship.
Compoundings: Why should other
students apply for ILMA scholarships,
and why do you think these scholarship opportunities are important?
Zhang: Applying for this ILMA scholarship turned out to be a very helpful
experience. During the preparation
of the application materials, you can
think about your experiment steps
again and identify shortcomings of
your experiment.
Also, the grants that come with
ILMA scholarships are great, and they
can really help you continue your
research when you are lacking funding.
The ILMA staff is also very supportive.
Of course, you can include the scholarships on your résumé, and because
of this awarded experience, I can surely
find a good job in the industry.
