The TribologyLab has been created by the collaboration between NTNU and SINTEF through the Gemini Centre “Robust Material Selection and Design –Offshore Applications”.


The goals of the TribologyLab are:


*      Research on tribocorrosion: sliding-corrosion and erosion-corrosion.

*      Research on tribological problems related with dry and lubricated systems.

*      Research on modelling tribology.

*      Support the industries in finding solutions related to wear, lubrication, friction, and maintenance.

*      To be a meeting point between the industries and European research centres and universities.

*      To educate engineers and scientists in tribological aspects.


Continuous expansion


The TribologyLab was created in 2008. Since then it has grown, and today our team is composed of professors, PhD students and Post.Docs at NTNU and scientists at SINTEF.

Our aim is to continue this growth by hiring competent people in the field and by establishing links with the industry and other universities and research centres worldwide.
