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.

Stribeck curve

Stribeck Curve

Stribeck curve is a fundamental and one of the most widely known concepts in tribology and lubrication fields. The concept represents the friction behavior in lubricated contacts as a function of viscosity of the lubricant, […]



Boundary Lubrication Boundary lubrication is the lubrication regime where the interface behaviour is dominated by chemical reactions that happen at the surfaces, tribofilm formation occurs, and the load is carried by the asperities. In the boundary lubrication regime the […]

Boundary Lubrication

What is Boundary Lubrication? Boundary lubrication describes situations where the applied load is primarily supported by contacting solid asperities, rather than a liquid lubricant. The boundary lubrication regime acts when the lambda ratio (the ratio […]

Surface Fatigue

Surface Fatigue

What is surface fatigue? Surface fatigue is the failure on the top layer of a body due to repeated loading. It can be differentiated from other types as it only occurs on the surface. It […]
