Apparently non-abrasive materials such as sugar cane [12] and wood chips can actually cause abrasive wear. Many tribological failures are associated with bearings. A. cost about US$25,000 per day, while to replace a £200,000 bearing in a single point mooring on a North Sea Oil Rig a contingency budget of about £1 million is necessary [13]. In addition there are some production losses which are very costly. The total cost of wear for a single US naval aircraft has been estimated to be US$243 per flight hour [14].

A number of attempts have been made to develop a formula describing the relationship between pressure and viscosity of lubricants. Some have been quite satisfactory, especially at low pressures, while others have been quite complex and not easily applicable in practice. The best known equation to calculate the viscosity of a lubricant at moderate pressures (close to atmospheric) is the Barus equation [4,5]. 5 [GPa] can, however, lead to serious errors [6]. The equation becomes even more unreliable if the ambient temperature is high.
