Trends in Nanotribology 2017 @ ICTP
Jun 26 – Jun 30 all-day
The physics of tribology – a vast interdisciplinary field covering friction, adhesion, lubrication, and wear -has been largely revived by theoretical, and technological advances that approach these phenomena at the microscopic scales. This International Conference will bring together scientists from laboratories all over the world that are active in nano and meso-scale tribology and will offer a fresh view of all new developments.

Summer school of Italian association of Tribology (AIT) @ Palazzo Fruscione
Aug 28 – Sep 1 all-day

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 by means of the LCP method.

Computational methods for the solution of contact problems, with focus on the boundary element method and the finite element method.
The effect of roughness in contact mechanics, including multi-field problems.

Friction and wear of fullerene-like WS2 & MoS2  nanoparticles. Mechanisms and Applications
Friction, wear and structure of FCC metals and alloys in the transition from elasto-hydrodynamic to boundary lubrication.

Contact mechanics of viscoelastic materials

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.
