Symposium D

Corrosion, tribocorrosion and tribology: study of materials and solutions to increase its life span

Scope of the Symposium

Nowadays, the research for new materials and solutions to reduce wear, corrosion and fatigue is vital to minimize, for instances, energy consumption.
This symposium covers all aspects of degradation of metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite materials, together with the characterization techniques needed to understand degradation phenomena. Solutions to increase the life span of materials submitted to degradation and corrosion, tribological fundaments, tribocorrosion, tribotesting (micro and nano scale), tribomaterials and in-situ tribology are also included.
We welcome contributions to improve scientific and mechanistic understanding of the degradation of materials, characterization tools and solutions to avoid or reduce degradation.

Abstracts will be solicited in (but not limited to) the following areas

  • Advanced materials and tribomaterials
  • Biotribology
  • Corrosion
  • Degradation of materials
  • Lubrication and lubricants, including solid lubricants
  • Materials for corrosion control
  • Mechanisms of friction and wear
  • Surface treatments and multifunctional surfaces
  • Tribocorrosion and biotribocorrosion
  • Tribological fundaments
