Lubricated Contact Conference
Lubricated Contact will cover all aspects of lubrication mechanisms from the nanoscale to the macroscopic scale with emphasis on the influence of lubricant additive chemistry and surface modifications on the lubricated film formation and friction response. This will allow us to establish a link between research groups investigating the chemistry, physics and mechanics of tribological systems from all over the world.
The program will include advances in additives and additive chemistry. Surface modifications, in terms of chemistry, physics and topography will be discussed. This session will include progress that has been made in surface analyses.
From nanotribology to elastohydrodynamic lubrication, including rheology and surface texturing, we will cover various space scales and lubrication regimes. A session will also be dedicated to the subject of biotribology to cover lubrication aspects of biological systems.
Further sessions will be focused on advances on the subject of solid lubrication/wear and ionic liquids for lubrication.
