Oil Analysis II (OA II) was designed to foster a deeper understanding of oil analysis. Through case studies, oil analysis reports, and group problem-solving exercises, students will explore oil analysis and its use in making lubrication decisions. The course also explores techniques used to detect the additive, thermal and particle factors that degrade oil.
