Fatigue is an old problem, but still responsible for many unexpected failures, mainly because microscopic defects become critical in a relatively short time. The subject is relevant to modern technology and a wide range of industrial applications, such as additive manufacturing processes and new materials. Safe life, fail safe and damage tolerance are various approaches to deal with fatigue design. Tribology, i.e. the study of rubbing interfaces, on the other hand, is a relatively new area, but has also crucial importance to limit damage occurring at the surfaces between interacting components, in the form of e.g. wear and contact fatigue. The symposium will aim to receive contributions from the broad areas of solid mechanics, fatigue and fracture, and tribology, which target new methodologies and recent advances in these fields, with particular emphasis placed on the problems occurring at the boundary between those disciplines.
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.
The first international conference on Numerical Modelling in Engineering (NME 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 advanced numerical techniques, such as FEM, BEM, IGA, etc., and their applications to a wide range of engineering disciplines. The conference covers industrial engineering applications of numerical simulations to Civil Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Materials Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics, Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, etc.
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
Call for papers
If you are interested in participation, please submit an abstract in English not later than June 30, 2018 (preferably by e-mail).
The Tribology Frontiers Conference (TFC) is where tribology researchers share their latest work and explore our science’s role in solving tomorrow’s key technical issues. Come visit one of the world’s most exciting cities and join us for four information-packed days with tribology’s top minds – you’ll leave with a better understanding of how your company’s products will fit into an ever-evolving technical future. More than 300 tribology researchers are expected to attend.
“Tribochemistry Hakodate 2019” will be held on September 12 (Thu.) – 14 (Sat.), 2019 in the Hotel Takubokutei, in Hakodate, Hokkaido, Japan. It will be held as a satellite forum of ITC-Sendai.This is the 8th international forum on tribochemistry organized by the Tribochemistry Technical Committee, Japanese Society of Tribologists (JAST).This international forum on tribochemistry has been held as a satellite forum of ITCs and WTCs since 1995: 1) 1995 in Tokyo, Japan, 2) 2000 in Tsukuba, Japan, 3) 2005 in Nara, Japan, 4) 2009 in Kyoto, Japan, 5) 2011 in Hagi, Japan, 6) 2013 in Lyon, France, and 7) 2015 in Nikko, Japan.
This forum will also be held under the cooporation of the Research Association for Computer Application to Catalysis, Catalysis Society of Japan (CatSJ). It will offer invited and contributed presentations in oral and poster sessions. Those who present a paper are requested to submit an abstract by February 28, 2019 in online via the website (under construction). Participants are also encouraged to take part in the ITC-Sendai which will be held in Sendai after the satellite forum on September 16 (Mon.) – 21 (Sat.), 2019. You will enjoy the forum, the historical heritages and the nature of Hokkaido.
