Research Laboratory of Tribology and Materials Testing
Testing methods and equipment
Tribology is the science and technology of interacting surfaces in relative motion, including the subjects of friction, lubrication and wear. The "Research Laboratory of Tribology and Materials Testing" specialises in abrasive, erosive, impact and sliding wear.

The best way to characterise the suitability of materials for certain working conditions is to simulate wear in laboratory conditions. The "Research Laboratory of Tribology and Materials Testing" of the "Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering" has years of experience in this field. Laboratory has designed and manufactured several unique wear testing machines, which allow to model different wear modes and to select the most suitable material for the given conditions. The capabilities of the "Research Laboratory of Tribology and Materials Testing" to investigate different forms of wear are briefly shown in the table.
