Short Term Course
Industrial Tribology and Maintenance
Under School of Mechanical Engineering
20th – 24th July, 2020


Tribology is most important applications for industry to maintain higher level of productivity and process operation in machinery and equipment. Tribology comprises of the science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion; that is, friction, lubrication and wear. Condition Monitoring based on wear debris analysis of used oil is considered as a tool which can quickly identify the health of machinery and diagnose the same before breakdown.

The course on Tribology for industry will provide the foundational skill-set for applying Tribology practices. Through this course, the Participants will be able to use the best practices for friction, wear and lubrication to boost reliability and generate lasting results in machine equipment, efficiency/ maintenance. They will also gain better understanding of oil analysis, so as to align their efforts with those of maintenance professionals.
