Description
TRIBOLOGY: THE STUDY OF ADHESION, FRICTION, LUBRICATION, AND WEAR
Tribology is the study of sliding surfaces. This course will cover fundamental topics in tribology relating to surface characterization, surface roughness, adhesion, friction, lubrication, and wear. Students completing the course will be able to describe the theoretical origins of these topics, which relate to mechanics, materials science, and chemistry. They will also be able to apply tools to solve novel problems in these areas. The course will especially emphasize applications in nanotechnology and biology.
