Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Friction is a ubiquitous and intricate phenomenon. When it is involved in the dynamic environment, innumerable problems arise in a variety of applications, such as the intensification of wear and fatigue, counteractive friction-induced vibration, and noise issues. Studies on the nature of friction, the dynamic analysis of friction-related vibration problems, and the development of novel numerical and control methods for dynamic friction problems all contribute to solving challenges related to friction-induced vibration. The topics of interest for this Special Issue include (but are not restricted to):

  • Friction sources at the nano-, micro- and macro-scale;
  • Dry friction dampers for turbine blades;
  • Mechanisms of friction-induced vibration and control methods;
  • Physics-induced neutral network for dynamic friction-related problems;
  • Rub-impact mechanism and dynamic response of rotor system with rub-impact coupling fault;
  • Any other friction-related dynamics and wear research.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Coatings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
