About this event:

Created by TriboNet

Monte Verita, Ascona, Ticino, Switzerland

The Friction and Wear across Scales Conference will be held on August 15-​18, 2022 at the Congressi Stefano Franscini (CSF) at Monte Verita, Ascona, Ticino, Switzerland. The conference aims to foster cross-​community scientific exchange on the interdisciplinary topic of friction and wear. It will bring together researchers from various fields including tribology, material science, mechanics, and earth sciences, to strengthen the links between fields and promote interdisciplinary research activities. The conference focuses on the combination of experimental, theoretical, numerical and data-​driven approaches.

Call for Abstracts

The key topics of this conference are friction and wear across all length scales. The focus is on the physical, mechanical and chemical properties and the fundamental governing laws underlying these processes as well as their application on relevant engineering problems.

Specific key topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. Nano-​scale friction and wear: atomistic interface interactions, single asperity dissipative processes, wear initiation and evolution
  2. Meso-​scale friction and wear: surface roughness effects, micro-​slip, subsurface cracking, nucleation processes, instabilities
  3. Macro-​scale friction and wear: onset of sliding, effects of heterogeneities, static friction, onset of material removal,
  4. Friction in natural systems: earthquakes, avalanches, glaciers, land slides
  5. Friction and wear in engineered systems: soft matter, architected materials, brakes, mems

The key focus is on a balanced combination of experimental, theoretical, numerical and data-​driven approaches.
