Tribology Wiki

Tribology Wikipedia has the same goal as the well-known Wikipedia: share knowledge from around the globe and create an encyclopedia accessible to anyone. Of course, Tribology Wiki has an emphasis in Tribology! Everyone is invited to read, write, edit and share Wikis. Please contact us via email if you would like to contribute an article or if you have any suggestions! You can create an article by going to Create New tab in any of the existing articles (you must be logged-in)

Engine Bearing

The Engine Bearing (Main Bearing) The internal combustion engine (piston engine) currently is still the most common engine used in automotive indutstry, even though the electric vehicles using electric vehicles are getting rapidly popular. Combustion […]

Friction Coefficient

Laws of Friction

Amonton’s laws of friction are categorized as the classical version of friction laws which have highly been accepted by the engineers dealing with friction. Guillaume Amontons has earned his name in the field of physics […]

galled specimen


What is galling? Severe types of adhesive wear are often called galling, scuffing, welding or smearing, although these terms are sometimes used loosely to describe other types of wear. In metal-to-metal wear tests, high stresses […]

Four Ball Tester RTEC Instruments

Four Ball Tester

Oil lubrication and lubrication technologies are essential in reducing friction and wear losses in machines. The key in efficiency of the frictional system is a lubricant (grease, oil, solid lubricants). Four Ball Tester, also known […]

Pin on disc

Pin on Disk Test

Pin on Disk Test Friction and wear (typically wear rates and wear resistance) characterization of materials is typically performed using various types of tribometers, while pin on disk test being probably one of the most […]
