Tribology Research

Our mission is to apply an understanding of the principles of tribology to industrial friction, lubrication and wear problems.

The Tribology Research Group covers a wide range of fundamental and applied research areas across all industrial sectors covering many different aspects of engineering. 

We have unique expertise in building sensor systems for tribology including the developement of sensors for measuring oil film thicknesses, contact pressures and system properties.

We also specialise in the development of design solutions for industrial wear problems. This involves building realistic wear test simulations, running tests under representative conditions and creating design tools and codes.
