Description: Tribology is the interdisciplinary study of interacting surfaces from the nanoscale to the macro-scale. These surfaces undergo friction and wear and sometimes, have fluids between them for lubrication. This course will occur mainly in two parts: (i) Contact Mechanics, (ii) Hydrodynamic (fluid) lubrication. Fundamental topics include friction, wear, heat transfer within interfaces, thin-film lubrication and computational Tribology.
