the study of the effects of friction on parts of machinery moving in contact with each other, and of methods, such as lubrication, to counteract negative effects such as wear.
The study of the reciprocal effect of surfaces in relative motion (DIN 50323 Part 1), includes friction, wear and lubrication.
Science and technology of interacting surfaces in relation to relative motion.
study of friction, wear and lubrication of interacting surfaces. [BNL
The study of the phenomena and mechanisms of friction, wear, and lubrication of interacting surfaces.
the branch of engineering that deals with the interaction of surfaces in relative motion (as in bearings or gears): their design and friction and wear and lubrication
science of lubrication, friction and wear when surfaces rub together; applies to the design of bearings, gears, slides, etc.
The study of friction, lubrication and wear on two moving surfaces in contact.
The study of friction. From French from Greek tribein to rub.
The science of interacting surfaces, encompassing the fields of friction, lubrication, and wear.
The science and technology concerned with interacting surfaces in relative motion. Ultrasonic An NDE technique which relies on an ultrasonic beam passing through a coating and substrate and providing a signal from the back wall which is then detected. The height of this backwall echo depends on the discontinuity in impedance from the sprayed coating to the substrate. Bonding flaws can be easily seen by the weakening of the back wall echo. Vacuum or Low Pressure Plasma Spraying Plasma spraying carried out in a chamber which has been evacuated to a low partial pressure of oxygen. It is then usually partially backfilled with argon to avoid the possibility of forming a glow discharge.
the science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion, including the study of lubrication, friction and wear. Tribological wear is wear that occurs as a result of relative motion at the surface.
The study of the reciprocal effects of surfaces in relative motion (DIN 50323 part 1). Branches of tribology include friction, wear and lubrication.
Tribology is the science and technology of friction, lubrication, and wear, derived from the Greek tribo meaning "I rub". Formally defined, it is the science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion and all practices related thereto.
