Special Issue "Numerical Analysis of Tribology Behavior of Materials"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2016)
Prof. Dr. Magd Abdel Wahab
Nowadays with the advances in computer technology, numerical analysis of materials becomes a very important complementary part to experimental research. Numerical techniques that fall within the scope of this Special Issue, include the finite element method, finite difference method, boundary element method, computational fluid dynamics, finite volume method, meshfree method and many others. Tribology behaviour of materials involves the study of the relative motion between two bodies in contact, and the effect of friction and lubrication at the interacting surfaces on damage and wear. We invite researchers to submit original research articles and review articles that deal with the application of numerical techniques at different scales to problems related to tribology, such as fretting fatigue, fretting wear, reciprocating wear, nanotribology, biotribology, and green tribology.Prof. Dr. Magd Abdel Wahab
Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be 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 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 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
