Aimed at UK research groups concerned with improving the understanding of friction, wear and lubrication processes, this half-day seminar will enable you to meet with fellow researchers for a series of presentations and discussions on current aims and progress in this area.
The emphasis is firmly on the contribution of the rising generation of researchers, with targets and methods of approach equally as important as results and conclusions.
The meeting will shine a spotlight on the national economy and the gain of benefits in efficiency, reliability and cost in the operation of plant and equipment in key areas of tribology today.
Donald Julius Groen Prize Lecture 2019: From Lubricants to Triboelectrification and Bioinspired Applications - Enhancing our Understanding through Modelling in Tribology
The 28th Mission of Tribology will be followed by the Donald Julius Groen Prize Lecture.
Donald Julius Groen 2019 Prize Award winner Professor Daniele Dini will deliver a presentation shedding light on the various physical, chemical and mechanical phenomena that affect tribological performance across the scales.
The main themes discussed are the study of the influence of molecular processes on frictional, rheological and material response, the potential breakdown of continuum theories at the nano and microscales, as well as multiscale and multiphysics aspects for computational models relevant to applications covering a variety of sectors, from automotive to biotribology and nanotechnology.
