Tribology is a study that deals with the design, friction, wear and lubrication of interacting surfaces in relative motion as in gears or ball bearings. Friction is the resistance to motion that is experienced whenever one solid body slides over another, wear is the removal of material from one or both of two solid surfaces in contact and Lubrication can be applied to produce low friction and wear and to provide smooth running and longer life to machine elements. Understanding tri-biology is essential for engineers in a number of fields to design and more importantly ensure reliability in machine parts and systems.
