He is a Fellow of the Society of Tribologists
and Lubrication Engineers, and a member of the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs and the International Society for Rotary Blood Pumps.
That isn't a particularly bad summary of what I and my fellow tribologists
at Cardiff actually do.
Experts in the fields (Tribologists
) examine these prepared slide samples by using an optical or scanning electron microscope.
Spikes admits that there are still areas where tribologists
are troubled with more traditional concerns such as improving durability and reducing wear.
It is of interest to tribologists
who try to understand the role of surface roughness in mechanics, it is also essential to those who analyse the geomorphology of our planet and its impact on habitability.
Over 50% of all bearings failures are due to inadequate lubrication practices, declares the Society of Tribologists
and Lubrication Engineers.
Editors Gresham (director of professional development, Society of Tribologists
and Lubrication Engineers) and Totten (materials science, Portland State U.) have gathered data from peer-recognized industry experts so that maintenance engineers can complete the STLE Certified Lubrication Specialist Certification program.
62nd Annual Meeting of the Society of Tribologists
and Lubrication Engineers, Philadelphia, PA, June.
HE IS A MEMBER OF THE SOCIETY OF AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERS, THE SOCIETY OF TRIBOLOGISTS
AND LUBRICATION ENGINEERS, AND THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR TESTING AND MATERIALS.

True, accurate, quantitative measurements still present a challenge to scientists and technologists in this field although, as tribologists
are becoming increasingly aware, tables of friction coefficients for a different materials are only marginally useful since the slider material needs to be known and the property is known to be effected by temperature, humidity, pressure, chemical environment and test-machine dynamics (14).

and Lubrication Engineers Annual Meeting & Exhibit Program.
Blaser Swisslube, an international producer of coolants, cutting oils, and a variety of other machine shop lubricants, provided the service of its tribologists
and laboratory facilities.
