Research and Development on Tribology and Lubrication in Materials and Manufacturing
The level of activity in tribology and lubrication research worldwide is currently higher than it has ever been owing to the increasing demands to save energy and improve manufacturing costs. Thus, from the viewpoints of green tribology and manufacturing, the development of novel lubricants, including novel liquid lubricants and self-lubricating solid composites, and development of novel bulk materials and thin films or coatings with high wear resistance are key directions. Particularly with the rapid development of science and technology, advanced tribology and manufacturing in materials for a wide range of extreme service conditions, such as high temperature, cryogenic temperature, dry contact, high pressure, high irradiation, vacuum conditions, and so on, have achieved significant success in recent years. This Topic provides an excellent opportunity for researchers and engineers who are studying and working in the fields of tribology, lubrication, material development, mechanical design, and industrial manufacturing. Research papers, review articles, and communications relating to the theory, simulation, and experiment of friction, wear, and lubrication in materials and manufacturing are all invited to this Topic.
