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.
