2020 Report on Emerging Issues and Trends - PRINT EDITION
STLE’s 2020 Report on Emerging Issues and Trends in Tribology and Lubrication Engineering builds on a multiphase research effort to evaluate current trends and predict future developments impacting the field of tribology and lubrication engineering that was published in the first two Emerging Trends reports in 2014 and 2017.
Based on input from technical experts from around the world, the triennial Emerging Trends Report includes a look into more recent advances and topics that have surfaced since the publication of the 2017 report.
The 70-page report summarizes key findings that are divided into two sections: Application Sectors and Field Issues, addressing important topics related to the field.
