SYMPOSIUM E
Tribology and Mechanical Behavior of Coatings and Engineered Surfaces

Technical Symposia: A | B | C | D | E | F | G | H
Topical Symposia: TS1 | TS2 | TS3 | TS4 | TS5 

Symposium Chairs        

Michael Chandross, Sandia National Laboratories, USA, mechand@sandia.gov
Giovanni Ramirez, Bruker Nano Surfaces, USA, j.ramirez_gonzalez@bruker.com

This symposium covers all aspects of tribology, mechanical properties, and adhesion of coatings and engineered surfaces. The scope includes both experimental investigations and modeling of static (e.g., indentation and adhesion) and dynamic (e.g., oscillating, scratching, sliding, and rolling) contacts, and contact/fracture mechanics from atomistic to macroscopic length scales. We welcome contributions that improve scientific and mechanistic understanding of tribo-mechanical responses, characterization and performance of engineered surfaces and coatings, processing-structure-property-performance relationships, design of coatings for specific applications, and size effects. Additional emphasis is given to multifunctional (hard and lubricious) and nanocomposite coatings for extreme environments, nanostructured coatings, and other coatings for advanced aerospace, automotive, and machining applications, along with advances in instrumentation and measurement techniques.

E1. Friction, Wear, Lubrication Effects, and Modeling  

Session Chairs

Albano Cavaleiro, University of Coimbra, Portugal, albano.cavaleiro@dem.uc.pt
Carsten Gachot, Vienna University of Technology, Austria, carsten.gachot@tuwien.ac.at
Nazlim Bagcivan, Schaeffler AG, Germany, nazlim.bagcivan@schaeffler.com

This session covers all phenomena related to friction, wear, lubrication, and modeling. We solicit contributions on the development, characterization and modeling of materials, coatings or innovative structures to control friction and wear, including liquid and solid lubrication. We are interested in studies providing new understanding of tribological mechanisms of coatings and thin films. Emphasis will be given to contributions on understanding the role of coating composition and structure in friction and wear reduction. Incorporation of additional coating functionalities (thermal cycling resistance, fracture toughness, oxidation resistance, etc.) is also an important issue. Contributions on theoretical and computational modeling of tribological interactions at the atomic or molecular level are also welcome.

E2. Mechanical Properties and Adhesion 

Session Chairs

Megan Cordill, Erich Schmid Institute, Austria, megan.cordill@oeaw.ac.at
Ming-Tzer Lin, National Chung Hsing University, Taiwan, mingtlin@dragon.nchu.edu.tw
Gerhard Dehm, MPI für Eisenforschung GmbH, Germany, dehm@mpie.de

This session is devoted to the measurement and modeling of mechanical properties of surface and near-surface regions of thin films, coatings, and surface-engineered bulk materials. We are interested in measurement methods and models for the quantitative determination of mechanical properties, residual stresses, interface adhesion, fatigue, and fracture toughness. Emphasis will be given to contributions on novel test methods, such as in-situ testing in SEM or TEM, multi-axial contact mechanics, MEMS test beds, and new approaches for the extraction of mechanical and constitutive properties by modeling of indentation load-displacement curves. Finally, special consideration will be given to contributions that address processing-structure- mechanical property relationships across multiple length scales.

Invited Speakers
