In 2008, the Swedish Research School in Tribology started with the aim to increase the number of doctors with international excellence. The program has been financed by VINNOVA and recently a closing seminar was being held as the support from VINNOVA ended in spring 2015, but the successful research school will continue.
Joel Furustig defended his doktorsavhanlding entitled "Semi-deterministic numerical simulations of wear on various scales: From Chemo-Mechanical Effects to the wear of components in the orbital type hydraulic motor" December 9, 2014.
The next course in the research school takes place on 28-30 of May at KTH. The course in question is Tribological components. A plan for upcoming courses is under way and will be available on the website shortly.
