Adhesive wear occurs when two solids are in a sliding contact and the atomic bonding forces occurring between the materials on the interface are stronger than the strength of the surrounding area in either of […]
Tribo Wiki 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, add, edit and share Wikis.
Definition Wear is defined as a surface damage of one or all solid surfaces in contact subject to relative motion. Wear might have different patterns corresponding to various wear mechanisms. A surface can be subject […]
Friction Definition Friction is a force acting opposite to the direction of relative motion. Friction rises on the interface between bodies, but may also develop within the body.Examples of the latter include air and […]
Reynolds equation is a partial differential equation which describes the flow of a thin lubricant film between two surfaces. It is derived from the Navier-Stokes equations and is one of the fundamental equations of the […]
Superlubricity is a recently invented term in tribology, which is generally defined as the state, at which the friction coefficient is low. The definition of “low” is not quite clear, but it can be assumed […]
What is Tribology? Tribology is the science of friction, wear and lubrication and is truly interdisciplinary. It studies the interaction of moving surfaces and every aspect related to friction, wear, lubrication, adhesion, tribochemistry, etc. Tribology […]
