27th International Workshop on Computational Mechanics of Materials @ Maria Theresia College
Sep 20 – Sep 22 all-day

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 other, it has created a lot of synergy over the years. Recent editions took place in Madrid (2014), Bochum (2015) and Tomsk (2016).

GFT: 58th Tribology Conference 2017
Sep 25 – Sep 27 all-day

„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 (Germany).

70 presentations from industry and research institutes, a poster session in the foyer as well as a trade exhibition with new and established products around Tribology will offer information on latest progresses in science and technology.

Please see the organizers website for more information.

The 89th Annual Meeting of The Society of Rheology
Oct 7 – Oct 8 all-day

The 89th Annual Meeting of The Society of Rheology will be held in Denver, Colorado on October 8-12, 2017; the optional associated short course will be offered October 7th and 8th. The technical program will take place at the Embassy Suites in center of downtown Denver. Local attractions include dozens of shops and restaurants on the 16th Street Mall (just 2 blocks from the Embassy Suites), Pixabay] Colorado History Museum (site of the Monday reception), Colorado State Capitol, and many other opportunities for dining and site-seeing.

The average high and low temperatures in Denver during October are 66°F and 33°F, respectively, with an average 1.4 inches of precipitation. Temperature decrease dramatically after sundown in the Mile High City, so plan on bringing a jacket even if predicted high temperatures are in the 60s or 70s.

The 2017 Union of the European Lubricants Industry Annual Congress
Oct 25 – Oct 27 all-day
For the last 53 years, UEIL has held its yearly Annual Congress in October, offering a unique opportunity to players in the European and global Lubricants industry to meet and network, strengthen their relationships, and learn more about the latest developments from a technological, economic, marketing and regulatory perspective.
The +/- 250 Delegates, decision makers in the sector, traditionally come from over 20 countries, including participants from Europe, the US, Asia and Africa, and represent various sectors within the Lubricants industry, and in particular:
  • Base oil and lubricants producers;
  • Additive companies;
  • Technology services companies;
  • Lubricants blenders;
  • Regulators.
This year’s Congress will take place in Bologna (Italy).

Adhesion and Friction: Simulation, Experiment, Applications
Nov 13 – Nov 16 all-day

Adhesion is a phenomenon that plays an important role in many technical applications as well as in biological systems and medical applications. Many aspects of this phenomenon are still not well understood. The workshop is intended to provide an intensive exchange of information on the state of research on the rapidly developing area of “adhesion and friction”, whereby “friction” also means “internal friction” (and thus adhesion of elastomers). Invited are representatives of physically and mechanically oriented research as well as representatives of the fields of application – in mechanical engineering, biology and medicine. The targeted applications are adhesion both on the macroscopic level and on the scale of cells (which is of great importance, for example, in cancer research) and even on the scale of individual molecules

Topics

·      Influence of macroscopic shape on adhesion

·      Influence of roughness on adhesion

·      Numerical simulation of adhesive contacts

·      Experimental studies of adhesion

·      Adhesion of viscoelastic media

·      Interplay of adhesion and friction

·      Modeling of adhesive contacts with friction

·      Adhesion and tribology of gradient materials

·      Adhesion and friction in biological microstructures

·      Adhesion of cells and testing methods based on adhesion

·      Molecular adhesion
