In-Person Surface Roughness, Texture, and Tribology Class/Workshop to be Held in May

The classes are a thorough and affordable opportunity to learn and apply the fundamentals of surface texture analysis.

Posted: December 6, 2022

Dr. Donald Cohen of Michigan Metrology is presenting a Surface Roughness, Texture and Friction online class, May 3–5, 2023, covering fundamental topics in surface texture, roughness, wear, finish, and friction.

Registration is now open for the Roughness, Texture, and Tribology class and workshop, which will be held in Livonia, Michigan, May 3–5. 2023. This class offers a unique opportunity to learn the fundamentals of surface roughness, friction, and wear, as well as the application of surface texture analysis in industry and research.

“This class is intended to help students to use surface roughness analysis in their workplaces,” said Don Cohen, PhD, who presents the course. “Live lectures and hands-on training with measurement equipment give our students a chance to ask questions and really learn what matters for their particular jobs.”

The class offers a deep dive into topics including:

  • Measuring roughness and waviness
  • Instruments for surface measurement
  • Filtering texture data for the application
  • Data analysis techniques and tools
  • Surface texture parameters
  • Specifying surface texture
  • Applying surface texture analysis to wear, sealing, and other functionality
  • Surface energy, adhesion and texture, paint appearance
  • Mechanics of dry friction and rolling friction
  • Fundamentals of lubrication
  • Surface metrology strategy

The 2 1/2-day class will be presented live, in accordance with CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

“We have been refining and expanding this class for nearly 20 years,” said Dr. Cohen. “It’s the most thorough and affordable opportunity we know to learn and apply the fundamentals of surface texture analysis.”
