President's Message

Dear Colleagues,


I am pleased to convey my greetings to fellow Tribologists on behalf of new TSI Executive Committee (2017-2018). As you may be aware, TSI has been making steadfast efforts for promoting the awareness, knowledge and practice of Tribology in India over past two decades. The Society has been made significant progress during the tenure of the previous Executive Committees with its regular conference/educational activities. It will be a privilege as well as a challenge for the current Executive Committee to continue the excellent work and take TSI to greater heights.

The society had participated in the 50th anniversary of Tribology functions at London last year and has come to be recognized as one of the active Tribology Societies of the world. The society on the back of its organizational skills for Tribology conferences has put its bid to host the next World Tribology Congress in 2021 in India. To highlight the importance of Tribology to industrial practices across the country, it will be shortly embarking upon a task of quantifying the saving potential by application of proper tribological practices across sectors of industry in India, similar to the surveys done across the world.

While we may be justifiably proud of our achievements, we have several tasks on hand such as the strengthening of academia industry interactions and involving the engineering student community in our society activities in a significant way etc. Our efforts can only be described as successful if we get the ultimate end users i.e. some of the key industry sectors to get involved in the TSI initiatives in a big way.

I call upon all of you to come forward and actively participate in these society initiatives.

With kind regards

Dr SSV Ramakumar, President 
Tribology Society Of India
