Tribology: Friction, Wear, and Lubrication

Monday, June 12, 2023 8:00 AM - Friday, June 16, 2023 5:00 PM (EDT)


Reduce waste and optimize manufacturing processes with the power of tribological science. In this dynamic five-day course, you’ll explore state-of-the-art advances in the study of friction, wear, and lubrication — and master the tools you need to overcome your organization’s large-scale manufacturing challenges. 

Over the course of five days, alongside MIT experts and accomplished global peers, you’ll examine actionable frameworks for: 

  • Controlling friction and wear behavior through lubrication, and material and coating selection 
  • Exploring the design of tribological surfaces and how to troubleshoot tribology problems 
  • Analyzing the mechanics of solid elastic and elastoplastic contacts 
  • Leveraging various modes of wear, including adhesive, delamination, fretting, abrasive, erosive, corrosive, oxidational (mild and severe), melt, and the wear-mechanism maps
