About this event

This two-day event will attempt to address current challenges in the field of transport and for development of materials and surface coatings for use in extreme environments. The latter have many applications for friction and wear reduction in tools for machining and for components required for energy-efficient transport systems. There will be a two day programme of invited speakers, poster sessions, exhibitions of manufacturer’s equipment and a round-table discussion. There will be a two minute slot for brief presentations by poster authors and a prize for the best poster.

The issue of transportation and the environment is paradoxical in nature since transportation conveys substantial socioeconomic benefits, but at the same time, transportation is impacting environmental systems. From one side, transportation activities support increasing mobility demands for passengers and freight, while, on the other, transport activities are associated with growing levels of environmental issues. The growth of personal and freight mobility in recent decades have expanded the role of transportation as a source of emission of pollutants and their multiple impacts on the environment.

As the late Professor Peter Jost pointed out some years ago over 25-30% of our energy usage in running machines and transport systems is used in overcoming friction. More gains in energy-saving could be obtained by operating engines at higher temperatures where, not only fuel efficiency increases, but also, a fuller combustion process occurs which minimises ejection of unused fuel in the exhaust gases. To achieve such gains the development and analysis of new materials and coatings is essential. The speakers and discussion sessions will provide latest information and identify new challenges in all these areas.

SERBIATRIB 17: 15-th International Conference on Tribology
Mar 17 @ 08:00 – Mar 19 @ 18:00

The 15th International Conference on Tribology – SERBIATRIB ’17 is organized by the Faculty of Engineering University of Kragujevac and the Serbian Tribology Society.

Organizing Scientific Conferences, Serbian Tribology Society plays a significant role in helping engineers and researchers to introduce in the fundamentals of tribology and to present their experience, solutions and research results.

Topics:

• Fundamentals of friction and wear

• Tribological properties of solid materials

• Surface engineering and coating tribology

• Lubricants and lubrication

• Tribotesting and tribosystem monitoring

• Tribology in machine elements

• Tribology in manufacturing processes

• Tribology in transportation engineering

• Design and calculation of tribocontacts

• Sealing tribology

• Biotribology

• Nano and microtribology

• Other topics related to tribology

TriboUK 2017
Apr 27 – Apr 28 all-day

The annual TriboUK conference will be held in London, 27-28 April 2017.

TriboUK is a conference specifically aimed to bring together PhD students and post-docs in the field of tribology. The conference offers an excellent opportunity for young researchers to share their work with peers and to build a network both in academia and industry. This annual event is organised by students from a different UK university each year. This year’s event is organised by Imperial College London.

We are accepting abstracts on all research topics concerning tribology.

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.
