NEW REPORT MAPS FUTURE TRENDS IN TRIBOLOGY AND LUBRICANTS
STLE’s 2014 Report on Emerging Issues and Trends, published this month, is the culmination of a multi-phase research effort to evaluate current trends and to predict future developments impacting tribology and lubrication engineering. The research encompasses the global opinions and experiences of nearly 1,000 tribologists and lubrication engineers who participated in the project as advisors, interview and focus group participants, and survey respondents. The 80-page report is divided into nine major areas: the outlook on the field, energy, manufacturing, transportation, atomistic processes, other tribology topics, government regulation, safety and the environment, and basic human needs. STLE Update readers can view an Executive Summary and download a free digital copy of the full report through the STLE website.

Special Add-on Event for Tribology Frontiers Conference Attendees
Wind Turbine Tribology Seminar
October 29-31, 2014 Concluding the Tribology Frontiers Conference
Hosted by Argonne National Laboratory, National Renewable Energy Laboratory & U.S. Dept. of Energy

Tribological design in wind turbine systems is critical. This seminar has 2 main focuses:
1. To provide an overview of tribology fundamentals relevant to wind turbines
2. To review the critical tribological issues and current R&D activities to address these issues

Additional focus will be on a specific mode of bearing failure, referred to as irregular white-etching cracks.
