Tribology laboratory was established at Dokuz Eylul University to carry out research and development studies in tribology and surface engineering. It is well equipped with a variety of experimental devices to conduct tribological tests and characterize the wear surfaces. The testing equipment are standardized according to international standards which can be designed to fit almost any mechanical system. The combined expertise of the mechanical and materials departments allows it to encompass all aspects of tribology with research ranging from hard coatings to lubrication of machines.
Tribology lab has been concentrating on three main subjects;
- Education; Undergraduate and postgraduate level courses on tribology,
- Research; Fundamental and applied research on friction, wear and lubrication covering a range of industrial sectors,
- Consultancy; Friction and wear testing for almost any application to meet your requirements.
