Tribology: Faraday Discussions No 156


About this book

Tribology is the essential science of all interacting surfaces in relative motion. Tribology affects our lives in many direct ways and is core to future transport and energy efficient machines, the control of emissions and low maintenance renewable energy systems, to the efficacy and performance of joint implants, and the operation of mircoelectromechanical devices. This Faraday Discussion focuses on advanced computational and experimental tribology combining multiscale modelling, analytical and experimental techniques to develop a better understanding of tribological processes at the molecular, micro and nano scales and the use of this understanding to link this to micro-system performance as well as predictive models concerned with macro contact.

Author information

Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned. The latest (2012) impact factor of Faraday Discussions is 3.82.
