    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    The science of interacting surfaces in relative motion, or tribology, includes the investigation of friction, wear, lubrication, and bearing design. It includes several fundamental engineering topics such as heat transport, lubricant chemistry, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and the chemistry of lubricants.
    The introduction includes a discussion of friction and lubrication. With a focus on characterizing the many types of wear, wear and erosion are examined.
    There are specific parameters that describe wearing. Environmental factors are acknowledged to have an impact on wear. We go into considerable detail about tribology testing. Friction coefficient, wear and abrasion, erosion, and hardness tests are among the testing procedures. We cover common plastic additives for polymers that enhance wear performance.

    Manuscript Submission information

    Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging in to this link. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed.
    Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent on email address:[email protected] for announcement on this website.
    Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
