Ceramic forms of hydrophobic materials could be far more durable than existing coatings or surface treatments. Water-shedding surfaces that are robust in harsh environments could have broad applications in many industries including energy, water, transportation, […]
New research indicates how static electricity puts the charge in material, offering answer to centuries-old question For centuries, scientists have tried to understand triboelectric charging, commonly known as static electricity. Triboelectric charging causes toner from […]
A recent study published in Nature has demonstrated unusual heat generation and fluid movement in the Alpine Fault of New Zealand that has implications for understanding earthquakes in the region. Large plate-boundary faults, such as […]
The IWCMM series aims at covering a broad range of materials and of modelling and simulation techniques to predict their mechanical response. Bringing the respective communities in both academia and industry in touch with each [...]
„Friction, lubrication and wear – research and implementation“ is the general heading of the 58th Tribology Conference of the Gesellschaft für Tribologie e.V., the German Society of Tribology, taking place on September 25th-27th in Göttingen [...]
The International TWC Wear Seminar concentrates on the selection and development of coatings for wear protection, tribological and wear testing of coatings, and practical aspects of wear resistant coatings.
