We plan to publish a Special Issue, including high-quality papers presented during the 16th International Symposium on Magnetic Bearings (ISMB16). Actuators will be one of the sponsors of ISMB16 (website: http://www.ismb16.org/), hosted by Tsinghua University, will be held 13–17 August, 2018 in Beijing, China. The primary aim of ISMB16 is to promote scientific and technological exchanges among researchers and engineering practitioners around the world. The conference is expected to attract several hundred active researchers and engineers, which provides a highly-desired platform for companies to promote their products.
Following the end of the conference, some selected papers that match the Journal topics will be published in open access, with the aim of providing a broad overview of the latest achievements and applications of magnetic bearings, magnetic actuators in many fields of mechanics, covering industry, automation, automotive, aerospace, and transportation. Papers could be original research papers, as well as review papers focused on the current state-of-the-art in one of the areas covered by the journal’s aims and scopes. The main topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- Active magnetic bearings (AMB)
- Passive magnetic bearings (PMB)
- Electrodynamic bearings (EDB)
- Superconducting magnetic bearings (SMB)
- Hybrid bearing systems
- Smart bearings Sensors, actuators, power electronics for magnetic bearings
- Self-sensing (sensorless) techniques
- Modeling, simulation, design and identification
- Advanced control
- Rotor dynamics
- Safety and reliability aspects
- Fault detection, diagnosis and tolerance
- Back up / touch down bearings
- Components and materials industrial, medical and aerospace applications
- Blood pumps, vacuum pumps and canned pumps
- Ultra high speed bearings
- Micro bearings
- Electromagnetic suspensions (EMS)
- Electrodynamic suspensions (EDS)
- Diamagnetic levitation
- Electrostatic levitation
- Maglev Train
- Magnetic Transmission
- Other related new fields
