Wind Turbine Tribology Seminar Immediately Concluding the 2014 TFC
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.

Applications Available for 2015 STLE Presidential Awards Program
STLE is now accepting applications for the society’s two academic awards through the Presidential Awards Program: The E. Richard Booser Scholarship and The E. Elmer Klaus Fellowship, which are awarded annually to encourage undergraduate and graduate students to pursue an advanced degree or a career in tribology or lubrication engineering by subsidizing a research project related to the field.

The Booser Scholarship is available for undergraduate students to pursue graduate degrees or a career in tribology by providing the opportunity for them to participate in tribology research. To be eligible, the student must be enrolled in an engineering or science curriculum.

The Klaus Fellowship is available for graduate students to pursue graduate degrees or a career in tribology by providing the opportunity for them to participate in tribology research. To be eligible, the student must be enrolled in a graduate engineering or science curriculum and should have completed no more than two years beyond their bachelor’s degree at the time the research is started.

For more information and to download applications, click here. Applications are due Monday, Dec. 1.

STLE Report Maps out Future Trends in Tribology & Lubrication
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.
