Tribology is the science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion. It is a highly multidisciplinary field concerned with all aspects of contact between two bodies and encompasses the subjects of friction, lubrication and surface damage.
Practical applications of tribology are found in a wide range of industries, from the automotive, aerospace and energy sectors to metal forming and replacement hip joints. Two areas of ongoing interest are the reduction of friction, to increase the energy efficiency of machines and thereby reduce global energy use, and the reduction of wear, to increase durability and reduce maintenance costs of mechanical systems.
This course will provide the attendees with a comprehensive and up-to-date understanding of friction, lubrication and wear with focus on practical applications of tribology relevant to current industry.
