Tribology SimulatorTribology Simulator is a software for the simulation of the most common tribological contact – a contact of two surfaces in a sliding motion. Besides the macro geometry surfaces can have microgeometry or nanogeometry (roughness). The contact may also be lubricated or dry. Examples of the problems that can be solved with Tribology Simulator: nominally smooth hydrodynamic simulation, nominally smooth and rough contact simulation (pressure and subsurface stress calculations, deflections), Stribeck Curve simulation (calculation of friction in mixed lubricated contacts), calculation of contact temperatures in solids, wear and wear particles simulation and surface roughness evolution, tribofilm generation. A manual can be found in the Help section. If you dont have MATLAB installed, you will need to install the MATLAB Compiler Runtime (MCR, free for download). See readme.txt file for further details. Solvers are based on the halfspace approximation theory for the contact, thermal and hydrodynamic simulations, which makes it faster compared to Finite Element Method or other fully numerical approaches.

Is the tribology simulator software a working one? when I press on ”Run” I get error of:
”error using waitforallfiguresclosed (line 9)”
”error while evaluating uicontrol callback”
Is there an updated version of software?
How to run it
It is very disappointing software. Please tell the steps to run the software.
Just a question, this software is a freeware or not?
Thanks
Hi Anthony,
Its a free tool.
Hello Tribonet,
I am using Ubuntu and I haven’t been able to run this code due to it being a Windows tool (it’s in a .exe format not supported by Ubuntu). However, MATLAB is able to run on Ubuntu. Is there a chance I could get the underlying MATLAB code to implement directly using MATLAB?
thanks in advance,
Hans
Dear Dr. Aydar Akchurin,
My name is Dzung investigating wear particles. Currently, I try to use tribosimulator to study. However, I had some problems when I simulate it. The input file is OPD file. Simulation Type: MixedLubricated Simulation. Macro Geometry: Line contact. Micro Geometry: rough and use only one surface. Contact Model: SemiAnalytic ElastoPlastic. Solid Material: keep it. Lubrication Model: full numerical. Wear Model: Von Mises Stress Based (There are only 2 theory wear in your thesis, why does tribosimulator have 3 theory?). Tribochemistry, Thermal Modle: don’t use. Contact Conditions, Contact Grid, Hydrodynamic Grid: keep it. The problem is ”Reference to nonexistent file FC”.
Best Regards,
Quoc Dzung
Hello Dr. Akchurin
Whenever I try to run a simulation, I end up getting an error that says ’Unrecognized function or variable ’S1’. So could you please help me with this?
Thank you

will it run on windows 64 bit , i downloaded Matlab run compiler also but as per read me file but application doesnt get open
I am a beginner in lubrication theory. Recently I saw the Tribology Simulator package you shared on the Internet (www.tribonet.org) and it was very amazing. I am able to get the result using the input file (Inputs.mat, Simulation Type: Dry Contact Simulation) in the ZIP file. However, when I customize the parameters for analysis, it is particularly errorprone. Could you provide some input files ( .mat) about Full Film Simulation and Mixed Lubrication Simulation ? It is best to also provide the corresponding roughness file ( .csv). I would be very grateful if I could get your help.
I tried to used this simulator, but I had some problem with this. E.g.: some simulation results (wear) aren’t available, the simulation does not run in many cases. I don’t understand if I have the problem or is the software not working properly / not suitable for what it was invented for? If the latter two, it should not be available because it is misleading.
