IET/IOP New Challenges in Tribology 2020: Sustainable Transport and Power
- University of Birmingham
- Engineering and Physical Sciences, Research
New Challenges in Tribology is returning for the new year.
New Challenges in Tribology has been established as a forum for practising engineers to learn from the insights of leading researchers from the UK and abroad.
New Challenges in Tribology 2020 focuses on issues of friction, lubrication and wear in Future Transport & Energy. Increased electrification in Transport and ever greater adoption of renewable wind and wave power for Energy are critical to the long-term reduction and eventual elimination of the use of fossil fuels in the Transport & Energy sectors. Friction and wear of moving parts and between vehicles and their environments will still need to be minimised to reduce energy requirements and operational costs, while maximising systems’ service lifetimes. The conference will highlight current & future opportunities for the international Tribology Community to address these opportunities.
