This special issue of Journal of Engineering Tribology contains selected papers from the 16th Nordic symposiumon Tribology, NORDTRIB 2014, which was held in Denmark on 10–13 June 2014. The symposium was organised by Lars Pleth Nielsen, Lone Elly Larsen, Sascha Louring and Claus Mathiasen, Danish Technological Institute, Svend S. Eskildsen, MAN Diesel A/S and Ion M. Sivebaek, Technical University of Denmark and Novo Nordisk A/S. More than 140 delegates from 22 countries enjoyed 114 oral presentations at the symposium, which took place at the Scandinavian Congress Center, in the center of the second largest city in Denmark: Aarhus. NORDTRIB 2014 covered numerous aspects on friction, wear and lubrication, and their practical applications, with presentations on environmental aspects of tribology, tribotesting, tribology in metalworking, materials tribology, tribology of machine elements, contact mechanics, lubricants and lubrication,surface engineering, polymers and biotribology. The papers in this special issue of Journal of Engineering Tribology were selected from the symposium presentations by the Nordic Advisory Board of NORDTRIB and have subsequently undergone a normal peer review process. In addition to the papers presented in this journal, some papers were selected for publication in Wear and Tribology International. The organising committee wishes to express their appreciation to all the authors and delegates who made NORDTRIB 2014 a success. The guest editors also want to acknowledge all the reviewers.
