Mike Adams, a professor of product engineering and manufacture at the University of Birmingham addressed students and faculty of East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) in Shanghai on Sept 7.

The professor, who is also a fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering exchanged ideas with his Chinese counterparts on talent training and cultural visits, after delivering an insightful speech titled "Friction and lubrication: applications to complex systems".

He illustrated several cases on the importance of proper use of friction in daily life, and went on to introduce the scientists' endless efforts to explain the phenomenon.

Professor Adams gave an exclusive example on the friction and lubrication between skin and glass, and shared his technological breakthroughs in the touch screen industry.

The simple but profound speech aroused great interest among ECUST students and teachers; they also had some in-depth exchanges on other topics.
