Based on a new boundary lubrication model, the characteristics of lubricants under boundary lubrication at low sliding speed and low contact pressure such as in machine tool slideways are investigated in relation to surface topography. It is clarified theoretically and ascertained experimentally that the property of lubricants under boundary lubrication can be estimated by the newly defined appraisal coefficient of boundary lubrication property determined by the thickness and load carrying capacity of adsorbed lubricant film and the surface topography.
