Green tribology at sea: Donald Julius Groen prize lecture

06 March 2013

A reflection on two decades of research into fossil fuel recovery and sustainable energy at sea from Professor Robert Wood, Director of the national Centre of Advanced Tribology.

Professor Wood will focus on how green tribology systems directly affect the economy. How can tribology impact on waste, extend and improve equipment life and reduce carbon footprints of many mechanical systems? A guide to using rigs/manifolds, marine energy systems (blades and gearboxes), vessel seawater handling systems, propulsion and drag reduction for energy solutions.
