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.

Join us at our next event on Challenges in Tribology being held at The IET: Austin Court, Birmingham on the 16 - 17 March 2017



This event will cover the "Challenges in Transport" and "Materials and Coatings for extreme environments!"

You can obtain 7 hours (per day) of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) from attending this event
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.
