VIRTUAL VEHICLEs Friction Dynamometer FRIDA just got an update to detect engine wear in real-time. Now it is not only possible to measure engine friction with excellent accuracy, but it is also possible to determine how new engine optimizations affect engine wear and the generation of wear particles. Our wear detection system monitors entire engine wear for particle sizes larger than 4µm. The new system is universally applicable and does not rely on RNT.

In the webinar this new system is presented together with engine test results, which show that this update is of great value for friction tests of modern, high efficiency engines.


FRIDA is the in-house developed friction dynamometer test bench for engines that allows in an economical way to measure highly accurately the friction power losses in engines for all operating conditions of interest (load and speed). In addition to its superior accuracy, it further allows to determine also the friction power losses of the subsystems piston assembly, journal bearings of the crank train and the valve train for these operating conditions.



The webinar “FRIDA’s new wear detection system” is an MS Teams event. Participation is free of charge for everyone, but registration is required. Please fill-up the following info, send it, and join us!


Two dates are available, the contents of the webinar will be the same.
