Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The performance of mechanical components and system is mainly determined by the optimization of the design and manufacturing process. How to apply tribology technology in the design and manufacturing stage is an important factor affecting the failure and efficiency of the system or components. The application of appropriate tribology design and manufacturing can reduce or avoid excessive friction and wear at the contact interface, extend machine lifetimes, and improve system reliability. However, along with the progress and development of our society, the requirements for precision and environmental protection have become increasingly stringent. Hence, tribology in design and manufacturing is facing more challenges. For example, green lubricants, green manufacturing, machine learning, and tribology monitoring are developing rapidly.

The current Special Issue is mainly connecting experts and scholars in related areas from all over the world, and scholars who participate in the 2022 International Conference on Engineering Tribology and Applied Technology to discuss and exchange in-depth on the issue. We welcome experts in related areas to participate in this platform.

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. Lubricants 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 1600 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.
