50 years of Tribology - sustainable manufacturing
The term Tribology was first coined in 1966 as documented in ‘Jost Report’. The word ‘Tribology’ has since then gained a common usage for matters related to friction, wear, and lubrication in machine interactions. Since Tribology is an engineering issue that goes beyond national boundaries, manytribology societies have emerged across the continents partly motivated by the pursuit of a greener world via waste reduction. Thus, in conjunction with the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Tribology, this Special Issue aims at informing colleagues in industry and academia about the recent Tribology advances and challenges in selecting materials, processes and cost reducing techniques for sustainable manufacturing. The papers included here will discuss about the methods, analysis, design advances, and new materials concerning all kinds of sustainable manufacturing and development with improved tribological properties from fundamental research to applied uses, with the resulting benefits of longer product/component life, less energy consumption, and reduction in product development time and cost.
