The launch of The Leonardo Tribology Centre at The University of Sheffield

A launch event was held in the prestigious Mappin Hall in The University of Sheffield's Faculty of Engineering on 22nd November 2012 to demonstrate - to the numerous industrial representatives in attendance - the advantages that can be gained by working with The Leonardo Centre.

How to solve Friction, Wear and Lubrication Problems

This event, organised by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and hosted by the National Centre for Advanced Tribology at Southampton (nCATS), covered how basic tribological knowledge can help to solve problems that lead to machine downtime, poor product design and incorrect material selection, among other issues; all of which can be very costly.

RSC - nCATS Joint Symposium on Tribochemistry

This event, which focused on research in the field of tribochemistry (the chemical reactions that occur between the lubricant, the environment and surfaces under boundary lubrication conditions), was jointly hosted by the National Centre for Advanced Tribology at Southampton (nCATS) and the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).
