This laboratory aims at developing and improving the technologies and products in engineering applications. In our laboratory we undergo in-depth study in the domains of friction, wear and lubrication and explore the science behind these phenomenons. We provide tribological solutions to various engineering applications. Our areas of research include nano tribology, polymer tribology, bio tribology, green tribology and coatings for low friction and wear resistance.


  • To develop and improve the technologies and products in engineering tribological applications.
  • To accelerate the tribology related research activities in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.


  • To develop new materials with improved tribological properties.
  • To develop experimental setups for testing of newly developed materials.
  • To create awareness of tribology among the students of SRM Institute of Science and Technology.
