national Centre for Advanced Tribology at Southampton (nCATS)
We specialise in tribology which is the science of friction, wear and lubrication of surfaces that come in to contact in motion.
We are a multidisciplinary tribology centre. We research next-generation tribological design issues and enable surface interactions to occur with minimal energy loss and impact on the environment. We focus on solutions to real-life engineering problems, including the challenge of efficient renewable energy systems.
