On August 28th, 2018 Auburn University hosted their 6th annual Tribology and Lubrication Science Minor Symposium. The event featured a student research symposium, a poster presentation, a keynote seminar by Dr. Kyle Schulze, and much more.
Since the advent of tribology, conflicting fundamental laws regarding the relationship that exists between friction and contact area in dry sliding condition have existed. For example, during the late 1400’s, Leonardo da Vinci found that the friction that exists between ...
High-temperature tribology is of particular importance in industries where operational efficiency is affected by the exposure of materials and tribological interfaces to elevated temperatures. Various factors like elastic modulus, thermal conductivity, hardness, thermo-mechanical fatigue, diffusion, grain structure and oxidation can ...
Solid particles in dusty environments can damage materials and affect dimensional tolerances in variety of industries ranging from gas turbines, helicopter rotor system (aerospace applications), boiler tubes (coal power plants) and wind turbines (renewable energy). Erosion of certain components can ...
