Symposium

B13: Tribology across length-scales: experiments and simulations

Belongs to:
TopicB: Structural Materials

Tribology determines the operating performance of almost all structural materials when two surfaces get into contact. Wear and microstructural evolution occur on multiple hierarchical length-scales, on each of which several mechanisms interact. The materials science of these mechanisms and how they determine the tribological properties is a new and dynamic field of research. This symposium brings together experimental and numerical researchers from the macroscopic tribometer-scale, mesoscopic nanoindenter- and atomistic AFM-scale, who investigate dry and lubricated friction, microstructural evolution and tribological surface layers.
