October 2017 Technical Session
October 19 @ 11:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Greetings Friends and Fellow STLE Members!
Warm greetings from STLE Philadelphia, as we welcome the 2nd technical session of the 2017-2018 year – BIOTRIBOLOGY! We had over 60 attendees at our September meeting, and we can’t wait to see new and familiar faces again this month.
Please join us on October 19th, 2017 for our 2nd session of the season, highlighting biotribology. Biotribology is one of the most rapidly growing and exciting areas in tribology, converging the disciplines of materials science, chemistry, fluid physics, biology, ergonomics and more. In fact, with application in prosthetics, dental, biomaterials, natural and artificial articular joints etc., it is highly likely that nearly all of us have been or will be beneficiaries of the advances in this amazing field. This month, our section welcomes 4 great speakers to elaborate on trends and research in this area – Please join us for an edifying afternoon. Please see the attachment(s) for further information.
RSVP Deadline: 10/17/2017
