King’s Dr. Dmitri Kopeliovich Presents "Engine Bearing Materials & Failure Analysis"
The Production Engine Remanufacturers Association (PERA) webinar that will be held on June 22nd will feature King's research and development manager and metallurgical engineer, Dr. Dmitri Kopeliovich.
Dr. Kopeliovich will explain to webinar attendees the features and benefits of different bearing materials as they apply to three major categories of workgroups. These include: gasoline engines for passenger cars and light trucks, gasoline and diesel engines for heavy-duty trucks, and the two general types of engines used in racing. He will list the performance requirements for each group and show which bearings excel in which applications. In addition, he will examine the main causes of engine bearing failures and explain how each breakdown can be resolved.
Regarded as one of the foremost authorities on engine bearing research and development, 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.
