7th International Conference on Fracture Fatigue and Wear, 9-10 July 2018, Ghent University, Belgium
The seventh international conference on Fracture, Fatigue and Wear (FFW 2018) will be held in the city of Ghent, Belgium. The overall objective of the conference is to bring together international scientists and engineers in academia and industry in fields related to Fracture Mechanics, Fatigue of Materials, Tribology and Wear of Materials. The conference covers industrial engineering applications of the above topics including theoretical and analytical methods, numerical simulations and experimental techniques. One of the aims of conference is to promote cooperation between international scientists and engineers from a large number of disciplines, who are involved in research related to Fracture, Fatigue and Wear.
Among the basic tribological phenomena of contact, adhesion, friction, lubrication and wear, wear remains the least scientifically understood. At the same time, wear remains one of the most important tribological phenomena in practice, affecting all aspects of our lives and current technologies. Our understanding of the fundamental processes of wear has been improving recently, due to new theoretical approaches, improved experimental techniques and rapidly growing numerical capabilities. It is felt that now it is the right time to revisit the subject of wear intensively, with a special focus on the understanding of physical mechanisms. The workshop “Science of wear” serves to survey the state-of-the-art in the field of wear research and to map out likely developments in the near future. From a technical point of view, three topics will be in the foreground:
– Interaction of plasticity and adhesion during wear
– Use of modern simulation techniques for prediction of wear
– Low wear conditions
· Interplay of adhesion and plasticity in adhesive wear
· BEM simulations of wear of heterogeneous media
· Wear of functionally graded materials
· Wear particles Emission
· Fretting, fatigue, structural damping
· Molecular dynamics simulations of wear
· Wear of artificial joints and implants
· Materials for tribological applications
· Systems with minimal wear
· Third body: modeling and simulations
