Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Every year, billions of bearings of all kinds are working worldwide. Without exaggeration, bearings are by far the most common machine elements. From miniature bearings used in watches to rolling bearings used in cars, and to huge sliding bearings used in hydro turbines, bearings are present in almost every possible aspect of our lives.

The role of bearings is to guide and support surfaces in relative motion and at the same time, to reduce friction. At a first glance, this may seem a simple task. However, not only does this task involve complex, physical, chemical, mechanical, and energetic phenomena, this role is of paramount importance in our current efforts to increase the efficiency of machines, to extend their working lives, and to protect the environment.

The significant research into all aspects of bearing operations has been extensive in the last century. However, the drive for better quality and longer-lasting bearings and the use of new materials, designs, and lubricants enable continuous research and add new knowledge to engineering science. The current Special Issue is aimed at the latest developments concerning lubrication mechanisms and lubricants and the effect of working parameters upon their functionality and the modelling of their behavior.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Lubricants is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
