STLE creates Jeanie McCoy Scholarship Award
New honor benefits female college and high school students pursuing careers in tribology.
Lubricant growth in Latin America and the Caribbean
New economic models are driving demand with Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Chile leading the way.
20 Minutes With Michael Stapels
This research chemist with Kao Chemicals GmbH discusses foam countermeasures and why he recommends ethercarboxylic acids for the formulation of metalworking fluids.
Words mean things
Especially when it comes to 3D printing, which could be on the verge of ushering in a third Industrial Revolution.
Selecting the right plane bearings
They do jobs other bearings can’t, but understanding their heat, friction and material properties is critical.
Moneyball for fluid development
Statistical design of experiments couples a numbers-based approach with practical experience to extract the most information from the fewest experiments.

2016 TFC ABSTRACT HIGHLIGHTS
Shining a light on the tribological rehydration of cartilage
By Axel C. Moore, Brian T. Graham, Chris Price, David L. Burris, University of Delaware
TECH BEAT I
A 2,000-year-old technique can place a stretchable battery on fabrics or on materials that adhere to the skin.
TECH BEAT II
Photoelectrochemical generation of hydrogen over 100% quantum efficiency
A new photoelectrochemical cell generates better performance than a photovoltaic cell using the same anode and cathode electrodes.
TECH BEAT III
Hexagonal close-packed high-entropy alloy
The new material is radiation resistant, making nuclear reactors a potential application.
