This is an IOP special interest group, which is a community of IOP members focused on a particular discipline, application or area of interest.
Special interest groups allow members to connect and share knowledge and ideas. The IOP funds groups to deliver a range of activities including events, prizes and bursaries. All of our groups are driven by members.
About the group
Tribology covers the field of friction, wear and lubrication of surfaces in relative motion.
Tribology is multidisciplinary and draws on:
As a special interest, member-driven group, we are a forum for the discussion of current developments in fundamental aspects of interacting surfaces.
What the group does
We have close contacts with other professional bodies to ensure wide coverage of the tribological field, while emphasising the fundamental physics of the processes.
