He was Gold Medallist of Tribology (1989) and Professor at the Otto von Guericke University in Magdeburg. He was author of the book „Wear and Reliability“ from 1982.

We were very glad to welcome Prof.Dr. Gerd Fleischer at the first Arnold Tross Colloquium. He spokes about his meetings with Tross in the early 60th and about the scientific work of Arnold Tross.
