The phenomenon of the motor oil viscosity stratification in lubricating the cylinder-piston units of marine diesel engines has been investigated. The correlations for determining the shear stress and the velocity, occurring in the liquid flow between the parallel planes, have been given. The modes of the hydrodynamic and the boundary lubrication, taking place in the cylinder assembly of the marine diesel engine operation, have been considered. The methodology has been introduced for determining

The results of the experiments, confirming the presence of the viscosity stratification in the boundary lubrication layer of the marine motor oil, have been submitted.
