Friction and Wear: From Elementary Mechanisms to Macroscopic Behavior

About this Research Topic

In the last decade, there was a strong drive in the tribological community to "bridge the gap" between nano- and macro-tribology. The current Research Topic focuses on landmarks attained in this endeavor.

In the last decade, there was a strong drive in the tribological community to "bridge the gap" between nano- and macro-tribology. The current Research Topic focuses on landmarks attained in this endeavor.

We invite specialists both in nano- and macro-tribology, as well as multi-scale simulation methods, to report their findings and discuss possibilities of integrating the information obtained on different scales into a single system. We especially welcome submissions aiming at formulating new, more elaborate tribological concepts better than the Coulomb friction law or Archards wear formula.

Topics:
• Atomic friction and wear
• Multiscale Modeling
• Mixed lubrication and boundary lubrication
• Contact mechanics with adhesion
• Molecular dynamics
• Contact mechanics of real surfaces with measured topography
• Generalized laws of friction
• Modeling of nonlinear wear behavior


Keywords: Tribology, Friction, Wear, Lubrication, Nano-Tribology, Macro-Tribology


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
