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


·      Influence of macroscopic shape on adhesion

·      Adhesion and tribology of gradient materials

·      Adhesion and friction in biological microstructures

·      Adhesion of cells and testing methods based on adhesion

·      Molecular adhesion

New Challenges in Tribology
Mar 14 – Mar 15 all-day

This two day event will attempt to address current challenges in productivity through Tribology and materials and surface coatings and will provide an update of the latest developments in materials analysis equipment in this field.

About this event

This two day event will address the current Tribology Challenges in the field of productivity through Tribology, along with the developments of materials and surface coatings. This event will bring together leading members from the community to hear key information from our invited speakers. Alongside this there is an opportunity to view the posters entered into the competition and an opportunity to interact with the exhibitors on show.
