Special Issue "Entropy Application in Tribology"
A special issue of Entropy (ISSN 1099-4300).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2017).
Research on the application of non-equilibrium thermodynamics to tribology has a rich history that, according to , began in Russia in the 1970s and, as described by Bryant, offers a framework to unify friction and wear . Today, there is a growing interest in this field, as its potentials are being explored by different researchers around the globe. Examples range from applications to friction and wear to both steady state and transient phenomena in trio-components, such as running-in, tribo-fatigue, damage analysis, monitoring the heath, aging and degradation of lubricants, and the fascinating concept of self-organization in the friction pair.
These are diverse topics of interest to the community, and potential authors are invited to contribute their research for publication consideration in this Special Issue of Entropy.

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. Entropy 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 1800 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.
