Tribology

Tribology (Greek: "principles of rubbing") is a branch of mechanical engineering that requires an interdisciplinary approach involving mechanical engineering, materials scientists and physicists.

Tribology is concerned wiht the scientific characterisation of friction, wear and lubrication and the development of technologies serving to optimise frictional processes.

A distinction is made between "tribomechanical" and "tribochemical" effects.
