About HTTC - 2018
High temperature tribology is at the center of achieving low friction and wear of components operating at temperature above 400 Deg C. It is driving the cost effectiveness in power generation, energy efficiency in aerospace and operational efficiency in metal forming. Such benefits are initiated by fundamental research that is pushing the limits of materials to sustain higher temperature. In the process of utilizing the fundamental research to solve industrial problems, the tribology test methods play a critical role. As it helps to screen and validate the materials relevant to the field or industrial conditions.
The purpose of this conference was to provide a holistic view of high temperature tribology by connecting industrial case studies, fundamental research and test methods.

National Institute of Advanced Sciences (NIAS)
Indian Institute of Science Campus
CV Raman Nagar Ave
Bengaluru, Karanataka – 560012
The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) is better known as ‘Tata Institute’ in Bengaluru. Use ‘Tata Institute’ with the taxi, auto drivers, and bus conductors. IISc is about 35 km from the new Bengaluru airport, Kempegowda International Airport (KIAL) which serves both domestic and International flights.
Basic Taxi Services
The most efficient way to reach IISc campus is by using cabs. Please download and install apps on your smartphones to avoid last-minute hassles. In Bengaluru agencies such as ‘Uber’, ‘Ola’ and ‘Meru’ are the most popular. Using ‘Ola’ you can also book autorickshaws.
Airport Shuttle Service
To get to IISc from the airport, you can use KIAS Route 10, and get down at the ‘Tata Instititue’ drop point. More information available here: https://www.mybmtc.com/airportservices
Bengaluru Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) run buses from various points of the city every 15-60 minutes to the Bengaluru Kempegowda International Airport (KIAL).
Autos are a convenient mode of transport as they are easily available and can be flagged down in any part of the city. Most of the drivers are affable, honest and multilingual. Apart from the local language (Kannada) most of the drivers are conversant in Hindi, and English. The fare charges are Rs 13.00 per km with a minimum fare of Rs 25.00 for the first 1.9 km. Always insist on being charged by the meter rate. When operated out of city limits and between 2200 and 0500 hours, the charges are, negotiated, and one and a half times the normal meter reading. Wherever possible, use of pre-paid auto service is recommended.
Getting to IISc From the Main Railway Station
The main railway station in Bengaluru is called Bengaluru City which is about 7 km from IISc. The railway station and the main bus stand (called as Majestic and Kempegowda Bus station) are opposite to each other. Pre-paid autorickshaw facility is available at the Bengaluru City Railway Station. You could tell the person at the pre-paid counter that you are travelling to Tata Institute. A trip to IISc may cost about Rs. 75. Travel by autorickshaws between 10:00 p.m. and 06:00 a.m. will cost 50% more. You can also use the bus services from the Majestic bus station: Bus Route nos. 252 E, 258 C, 271 E, 273 C, 275, 276, 99 A and B . Alight at TATA INSTITUTE Bus Stop.
