This problem introduces breakthroughs in tribology at the nano and micro level, as well as the latest developments in nanotechnology and magnetic storage technology. In order to fulfill this mission, the Society organizes two-year international conferences on Industrial Ribbon ICIT in different parts of the country, allowing tribology practitioners to discuss and present their work in various aspects of this interdisciplinary field. When removing surface material, the cracks become closer to the surface, and shear stress increases, which causes removal of the surface layers by delamination.

The scope of Professor Dowson's survey is broad in time, place, and subject. All the major periods in the history of science and technology are covered, including the much-neglected Middle Ages, the Renaissance and other recognised eras of scientific development.
For each period the author puts tribology in its social, environmental, and historical context, to show that the science and technology of tribology developed from the need to solve the practical problems of the day. Lavishly illustrated with photographs, diagrams and line drawings, this edition contains much new material dealing with recent developments in tribology.
This immense historical survey has been written for all those concerned with tribology in the belief that future developments can benefit greatly from lessons learnt from the achievements and problems of the past.
