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 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.

Tribology - past to the future
The word “tribology” is always one that receives a puzzled look from those not in the know…how can we change this?  If you have any ideas please let me know. read more...
