(This article belongs to the Special Issue Entropy Application in Tribology)
Application of the phenomenon of self-organization for the development of wear resistant materials has been reviewed. For this purpose the term of self-organization and dissipative structures as applied to tribology have been discussed. The applications of this phenomenon have been shown in order to develop new wear resistant- and antifriction materials. Specific examples have been shown for the application of the self-organization phenomenon and the generation of dissipative structures for the formation of tribotechnical materials with enhanced wear resistance for current collecting materials and antifriction materials of bearings.
