King Engine Bearings, a leader in high performance engine bearings, has released the video of a standing room only technical seminar conducted at the 2010 Performance Racing Industry Trade Show (PRI Show) in Orlando, FL, by Dr. Dmitri Kopeliovich. "Engine Bearing Material Selection" by Dr. Kopeliovich, King’s research and development manager, is a nearly 50 minute presentation that is now available to view, free-of-charge at www.kingbearings.com/tech_materials.php.
As Dr. Kopeliovich pointed out at his seminar, although engine bearings are small and relatively inexpensive they are "definitely not simple." He told the PRI audience that he has dedicated his career to help people understand engine bearings.
The video of Dr. Kopeliovich’s presentation will be of particular interest to engine builders and race teams who want to gain an in-depth understanding of engine bearing properties, engine bearing materials structure, composition, characteristics and applications. His seminar also helps people understand how engine parameters affect bearings operation, how to test engine bearing materials, and the causes of engine bearing failures.
Dr. Kopeliovich earned his Ph.D. in materials engineering and serves as the manager and team leader of King’s advanced materials research and development unit. He’s known and well regarded for his extensive investigations into the cause and prevention of premature engine bearing failure.
