Wear of Materials 2017 : 21st International Conference on Wear of Materials
Call For Papers
The conference will focus on both the fundamental and applied aspects of wear and friction of materials at the macro-, micro-, and nano-scale. It will address the understanding of tribological phenomena; particularly the progression in recent decades. Special sessions will concentrate on wear of tools and tooling materials, hot and cold erosion (droplet, solid and cavity-based erosion), wear of brake/frictional materials, marine wear systems, role of third bodies during wear, and surface texturing for wear reduction.
Abstract Submission Deadline: 27 May 2016
Oral and poster abstracts are now invited on the following topics.
Elevated Temperature Wear
Thick and Thin Coatings
Modeling and Simulation
Biotribology – hard materials
Biotribology – soft materials
Polymers and PMCs
Ceramics and CMCs
Metals and MMCs
Erosion and Erosion-Corrosion
Wear Testing and Monitoring
Friction Materials including Brakes
Wear of Tools and Tooling Materials
Role of Third Bodies during Wear
Marine Wear Systems
Others (not listed above)
Three types of presentations are invited:
(1) full-length research-quality papers that involve materials aspects of wear and wear analysis based on carefully-designed experiments, modeling and understanding wear mechanisms, surface damage characterization, and novel materials and coatings for friction and wear mitigation
(2) case studies that describe effective engineering solutions to practical wear problems or the development of useful, new wear testing methods
(3) engaging posters that address a specific tribological topic that has academic or industrial relevance to WOM attendees and the greater tribology community.
