The Tribology Network's Committee are looking for your thoughts on what you would like from this community. To take part in their short survey please go here

Calling all IET members!
Getting involved with the Tribology Network online, by viewing a video or engaging with an online discussion, counts towards your Continuing Professional Development. For more information click here.



Video from the NPL Webinar on 30th May 2013 ("Generating Robust and Relevant Data for Tribological Performance") is available in our Videos section (link on the right)

Calling all Tribologists!
You don't need to be an IET member to join the Tribology Network. Simply click the Register button (on the right) and sign up MyCommunity - at no cost to you. It will only take a couple of minutes, then you'll be welcome to participate fully in this growing online community.
(If you don't see the Register button, you are already signed up with MyCommunity, and you should be able to join the Tribology Network directly)

 


If your work in Tribology involves the measurement and characterisation of surface geometry and material properties, you may be interested in the IET International Measurement Community. For more information, click here. Also, check out the International Instrumentation Symposium, which they are organising in London next June.

Community Information

Category:
Technical
Description:
Tribology is the science and technology of interactive surfaces in relative motion. It incorporates various scientific and technological disciplines such as surface chemistry, fluid mechanics, materials, lubricants, contact mechanics, bearings, and lubrication systems. It is customarily divided into three branches: friction, lubrication, and wear.

Community Chairman:

Home
The IET Tribology Network is a partner organisation in UK Tribology. UK Tribology is a multi-institution collaboration designed to raise awareness of the subject and application of tribology; the study of interacting surfaces in relative motion or, in layman's terms: friction, wear and lubrication.
