Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As a critical industrial technologies, mechanical friction and surface technologies have been widely applied in many fields. They not only have a significant impact on the performance and quality of materials but also have profound effects on the environment and ecology. Therefore, this Special Issue will focus on the latest research results regarding the cutting-edge technologies in these fields, providing insights to readers and promoting the progress of industrial technology.

This Special Issue will focus on three primary research topics, namely, lubrication and sealing technology, tribology research, and surface technology, all of which include the consideration of lubrication mechanisms, lubrication cavities, sealing mechanisms, lubrication performance evaluation, sealing performance evaluation, friction failure, friction wear, friction pair optimization design, friction testing, contact modeling, surface micromachining, surface modification, surface textures, surface coating, roughness modeling, and other key technologies. We welcome submissions of all kinds, and we believe that your research findings and technological applications will ensure that the content of this Special Issue is as exciting as possible. We will do our best to provide you with the highest quality editing and publishing services, helping your research results to be disseminated more widely.

We hope to collaborate with other like-minded researchers to promote the development of mechanical friction and surface technology and contribute to the progress of human society.

Metal machining production faces a myriad of demands encompassing ecology, automation, product control, and cost reduction. Within this framework, an exploration into employing a direct inspection of the machined area within the work zone of a given machine through a confocal chromatic sensor was undertaken. In the turning process, parameters including cutting speed (A), feed (B), depth of cut (C), workpiece length from clamping (D), and cutting edge radius (E) were designated as input variables. Roundness deviation (Rd) and tool face wear (KM) parameters were identified as output factors for assessing process performance. The experimental phase adhered to the Taguchi Orthogonal Array L27. Confirmatory tests revealed that optimizing process parameters according to the Taguchi method could enhance the turning performance of C45 steel. ANOVA results underscored the significant impact of cutting speed (A), feed (B), depth of cut (C), and workpiece length from clamping (D) on turning performance concerning Rd and KM. Furthermore, initial regression models were formulated to forecast roundness variation and tool face wear. The proposed parameters were found to not only influence the machined surface but also affect confocal sensor measurements. Consequently, we advocate for the adoption of these optimal cutting conditions in product production to bolster turning performance when machining C45 steel. Full article

The finite element method(FEM) is a powerful tool for studying friction and wear. Compared to experimental methods, it has outstanding advantages, such as saving financial costs and time. In addition, it has been widely used in friction and wear research. This paper discusses the application of the FEM in the study of friction and wear in terms of the finite element modeling methods, factors affecting wear behavior, wear theory, and the practical application of the method. Finally, the latest progress of finite element simulation wear research is summarized, and the future research direction is proposed. Full article
