This international congress is the showcase for more than 800 papers which represent the best in tribological research and industrial aplications. One-page abstracts of these papers are presented in this text. Topics covered include: thick film bearings; lubricant chemistry and rheology; EHL and boundary lubrication; magnetic storage systems; wear in ceramic systems; biotribology; rolling bearngs; manufacturing and maintenance; environmental issues; and micro- and nano-tribology.
The IMechE is the United Kingdom's qualifying body for mechanical engineers and the home of mechanical engineers for over 150 years. Around 75,000 engineers world-wide are members.
