Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Tribology is the science of friction, wear and lubrication for dynamic systems in relative motions, which play a crucial role in our daily lives from the molecular to macroscale. Tribological science contributions are pivotal for the addressal of emerging challenges in society related to energy consumption, climate change, biomedical devices, etc. In recent years, the development of hybrid materials in polymer and material science industries has advanced in regards to their tribo-performance, and so it would be useful to explore novel avenues. It has been proven that emerging technology depends on the advancement of tribological research progress.

Despite its utmost importance, the tribological process is extremely complex due to its interdisciplinary nature and multiscale character. The aim of the present Special Issue is to focus on strategies to regulate the tribological characteristics of interactive surfaces applicable to energy consumption, emission, sustainability and the mechanical failure of coatings. This Special Issue also plans to focus on the wide variety of lubricants developed in solid and liquid states through theoretical concepts, experimental results and numerical evaluations, thoroughly discussing the engineering of the composites, mechanisms and underlying physics. We would like to invite contributions from various fields of surface science, engineering, bio-compatible surfaces and material science.

  • Modulation in tribology through surface treatments;
  • Solid-state lubricants;
  • Polymers in tribology;
  • Nanoscale and microscale tribology;
  • Wear, abrasion, fretting, scratch-resistant and adhesion force;
  • Tribo-corrosion;
  • Biomaterials;
  • Emerging coating technology.

In this work the effect of preliminary curing on mechanical, physicochemical and tribological properties of SLA (Stereolithography Appearance) manufactured samples is presented. Three preliminary curing times of 5, 10 and 15 s were selected for SLA manufacturing. The materials’ friction, hardness and capacitance values were determined by ball cratering, Brinell method and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, respectively. The obtained results showed that the mechanical property values changed most significantly after 10 s of preliminary curing, but friction wear and electrochemical capacitance showed greatest change for samples cured for 15 s. This effect may be explained by the domination of elongation of molecular chains in the first 10 seconds of preliminary curing and the gradual increase of branching processes during the next 15 s.
