An idealized database for tribology is described that contains numeric data with characteristics needed for use in modeling approaches in tribology. Tribological data on materials are considered in detail, and other types of required data are identified. Testing methodologies for obtaining data are examined. Priority areas for future work in data gathering and data evaluation in tribology are suggested.
