Session headings and selected papers: Keynote Address. A role for tribology in life cycle design (R. Clift). Invited Lectures. Fuel economy improvement by engine and gear oils (W.J. Bartz). Engine oil fuel efficiency - practical issues (S. Korcek). Some challenges to tribology posed by energy efficient technology (H.A. Spikes). Lubricants (1). Nano-rheology of polyisoprene solutions confined between two solid surfaces (S. Millot et al.). Wear. Preliminary study of the tribological performance of surface coatings under different slide-to roll ratios and lubricated condition (C.W. Chan et al.). Friction Reduction. Four great challenges confronting our understanding and modeling of sliding friction (P.J. Blau). Hydrodynamics. Analysis of mixed lubrication of dynamically loaded journal bearings including non-Newtonian effects and mass conserving (C. Zhang et al.). Elastohydrodynamic Lubrication. Starved elastohydrodynamic lubrication of the rib-roller end contact in tapered roller bearings: film thickness, traction and moments (F. Colin et al.). Surface Roughness. Experimental studies of dynamic sliding wear for PEHL contacts (W. Wang, P.L. Wong). Invited Lectures. Energy conservation through surface engineering (P.A. Dearnley, H. Weiss). Energy conservation through extended component life (M.H. Jones). The impact on tribological issues of energy conservation in metal forming operations (J.H. Beynon). Manufacturing. Optimisation of wall friction in food processing (B.J. Briscoe et al.). Component Life. Analysis of the fretting behaviour of a glass/epoxy interface (M. Kharrat, A. Chateauminois). Component Life - Condition Monitoring. Condition based maintenance - the benefits of counting the cost (B.S. Rajan, B.J. Roylance). Lubricants (2). Elastohydrodynamic friction behaviour of polyalphaolefin blends (A. la Fountaine et al.). Automative. A tribological study of roller follower valve trains. Part 1: a theoretical study with a numerical lubrication model considering possible sliding (F. Ji, C.M. Taylor). Friction Reduction. Wet friction materials for the continuous slip torque converter clutch - fuel economy improvement of passenger car equipped with automatic transmission (F.Y. Kamada et al.).


The 24th Leeds-Lyon Symposium was held in London from 4th-6th September 1997, where it was hosted by the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine.

The meeting addressed the topic of "Tribology for Energy Conservation" and attracted a wide range of stimulating papers and speakers. Some 150 delegates from nineteen countries attended and about sixty papers were presented in fifteen sessions. These covered the topics of lubricants, wear, friction reduction, hydrodynamics, elastohydrodynamic lubrication, surface roughness, manufacturing, component life (including condition monitoring), and automotive aspects.


For scientists, researchers and manufacturers interested in tribology for energy conservation.
