Our Latest Webinars
Call out to all Tribology Professionals
Come and hear about the iTRIBOMAT Project on our next webinar on 29 September 2021 11.00hrs.
Focussing on the challenges experienced in designing a centralised resource for the tribology community.
With Dr. Donna Dykeman, R&D Manager for Collaborative Projects, Ansys UK and DI Franz Pirker, Business Development Manager, AC2T Research GmbH, Austria.
The Impact of Surfaces on Medical Devices
Our speaker will be Barry Twomey, Director, ADVANCE Centre, University College Dublin. 24 November 2021 11.00hrs GMT.
This webinar will consider the longevity of an orthopaedic device which is typically limited by its long-term response to the body rather than the physical strength of the device and the struggle between bulk and surfaces in relation to these devices.
Watch OnDemand - Combustion vs Electrified Powertrains: the future of tribology and lubrication

IMechE’s Silver Medal for Tribology Winner Announced
Professor Dwyer-Joyce’s research has pioneered the use of ultrasound for the measurement of tribological machine elements. He has worked on tribology aspects of aircraft landing gear joints, wheel-rail contamination and wear, abrasive cleaning of teeth, erosion in rice processing, engine valve recession, debris and rolling contact fatigue, and Li-Ion battery mechanics.

Call to Action for the IET Tribology Technical Network Executive Team
The TN is looking for new volunteers to join its Executive and Technical Advisory Panel teams, so if you are interested, please read our Charter document and contact our Community Manager, Deborah-Claire McKenzie.
The Tribology TN supports the event of the IOP Tribology Group which was formed in 1980 to provide a forum for the discussion of current developments in fundamental aspects of interacting surfaces. Tribology, which broadly covers the field of friction, wear and lubrication of surfaces in relative motion, is an interdisciplinary subject drawing on knowledge from the fields of physics, chemistry, metallurgy and engineering. The group organises events and awards prizes in its field. You can find out more information about the group and its events here.
