About the event

Tribology image Tribology is the study of friction, wear, lubrication, and the design of bearings; the science of interacting surfaces in relative motion.

This two-day event will address the current challenges in Tribology, along with the developments of materials, corrosion and surface coatings.

This event will bring together leading members from the community to hear key information from our invited speakers.

Alongside this there is an opportunity to view the posters entered into the competition and an opportunity to interact with the exhibitors on show.

For more information about The IET Tribology Network, see their Engineering Communities page.
