Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2022) | Viewed by 7078
Interests: interactions of solid particle erosion and wear of materials in corrosive environments with specific emphasis on the development of mapping techniques for understanding the mechanisms of materials loss
We hope you and your family are safe and well in these uncertain times.
We are very pleased to invite you to submit a paper to this Special Issue of Lubricants on “Mapping the Tribology Mundi: Interactions with Global Corrosion Issues”.
This Special Issue will publish papers from leading experts on tribology and tribo-corrosion maps. We will highlight state-of-the-art developments in biomedical (dental and hip joint) and energy fields, including renewable energy. There have been major shifts in the use of green energy in the past 20 years with an increasing proportion of this landscape focused on wind and tidal energy. In the biomedical field, we now have many choices of replacement dental implants, hip joint materials, coatings, and stents. Novel and generic approaches to the development of multi-parameter maps are invited and links between CFD modeling, two-dimensional approaches, and sensors are welcome, to develop smart maps for the use of these techniques in practical environments. Thus, we are particularly keen to attract fundamental ideas and to link interdisciplinary fields to identify novel tools to manipulate and generate and apply such maps. As our horizon has shifted towards understanding coronaviruses in the past 6 months, we welcome any tribological or corrosion mapping approaches involving viral effects on materials.
As well as publishing your paper, Lubricants will also include the Special Issue as part of a book to highlight this important field in Tribology.
We very much hope that you can contribute a paper. If you have any further questions, please let us know.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
