Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The importance of tribology has been increasingly emphasized over the years as we face critical technical and social issues related to energy and the environment. In this regard, tribology will continue to play a vital role in the development of novel technologies to maximize the efficiency as well as performance of machines and devices. In particular, coating is one of the most important tribological techniques to control friction and wear.

In this Special Issue, papers on tribological coatings, selected from the 3rd Korea-Tribology International Symposium (K-TRIB2023) will be published. The aim of K-TRIB2023 is to provide an opportunity for scientists and engineers from all over the world to share the latest information on a wide range of topics relevant to tribology.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
