AbstractThis report represents, in a very real way, the coming of age of tribology as an engineering discipline in Canada. This is the first attempt to determine the economic implications of poor tribological practice applied to the Canadian industrial environment. It describes in clear terms the benefits that can accrue to the Canadian economy through increased emphasis on tribology research and development and through the wide application of the knowledge so gained.
