Division of Machine Elements

Published: 22 April 2006

This division is working with machine elements, e.g. components in all kinds of machines. Examples of these components are gears, brakes, clutches, screws, etc. The research on the division is mainly concentrated to Tribology, which is the science of wear, friction and lubrication. Research projects are working with applications from automotive industry, hydro power systems and hot metal forming of high strength steels. The projects are based both on experimental work and simulations of tribological contacts.


Some of the research projects on the division of machine elements is:
- Mchine elements' tribology
- Bio tribology
- Automotive tribology
- High temp tribology
- Wear
- Lubricants and lubrication
- Tribology modeling and simulation
- Tribochemistry
- Tribotronics / Active tribology
