Group Information

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 fields: friction, lubrication, and wear, and most work in tribology covers at least two of these.


Welcome to the IET's Tribology Network, we bring together engineers working in the field of Tribology wherever in the world you are based, you are welcome to join us!  If you haven't already, please login, join the group and introduce yourself to fellow engineers.
  The IET New Challenges in Tribology
The IET: Austin Court, Birmingham on the 14 - 15 March 2018

This event will cover the "Productivity through Tribology" and "Materials and Coatings for extreme environments!"

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.


Upcoming events


Just got back into the office from attending the Challenges in Tribology event held in Birmingham last week (16 & 17 March 2017) Dr Martin Webster from ExxonMobil explained that the Tribology Community “needs to improve the perception on how critical Tribology is as an enabler for emerging technologies” otherwise Tribology will always be the unsung ... read more...
