Special issue on: "Tribology in Manufacturing Processes"

Guest Editor: Prof. Paulo A. F. Martins, TU Lisbon, Portugal

Tribology deals with the interaction between workpiece and tools and plays a very important role in manufacturing. Friction and wear are key problems for technicians and engineers who design processes and products in daily practice because good lubrication conditions can significantly influence the performance and economics of the manufacturing operations.

This special issue invites the submission of high quality research papers related to the technology of lubrication in manufacturing processes with special emphasis on modelling of friction and wear in tools, dies and workpieces, novel materials, coatings and lubricants for manufacturing processes, new testing methods and industrial case studies.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Technology of lubrication in manufacturing processes
  • Modelling and understanding of friction and wear
  • Novel materials, coatings and lubricants
  • New friction and wear testing methods
  • Case studies
