A new multimillion pound collaborative research project led by BP and the University of Manchester could help to dramatically reduce the impact that surface degradation processes such as corrosion and wear have on industry worldwide. […]
Just like any mechanical device, a wind energy system needs timely, appropriate lubrication in order to function reliably and predictably. Wind turbines routinely withstand extremely demanding conditions: vibration, high mechanical loads, contamination and moisture […]
This article explains the vital role Friction has to play in Rock Climbing. Thanks to Richard Jones and Glen Harding for their input. Friction is the magic ingredient in bouldering and rock climbing. It’s what […]
The lecture topics includes, but not limited to: Thin film flow modelling. Including hands-on finite difference method implementation of a solution procedure for the 2D Reynolds equation in cylindrical coordinates. Modelling cavitation in hydrodynamic lubrication [...]
The scope of this conference embraces the state of art and future trends in tribology research and application, emphasizing the necessity of facilitation intellectual collaboration across both disciplinary and national boundaries.
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 [...]
