Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In engineering applications, the safety, reliability, high efficiency, low consumption and environmental optimization of equipment are important for the development of a low-carbon economy. However, the gradual degradation of special materials leads to gradual changes in their dynamic response and thermal load characteristics, resulting in an unstable working quality and the failure of equipment. Therefore, the monitoring and evaluation of the degradation of special materials is a key issue for high-end equipment in order to achieve reliable operation and healthy service.

The main purpose of this Special Issue, entitled “Evolution of the Working Performance of Special Materials during the Whole Life Cycle”, is to find solutions to the difficulties and challenges encountered in the quantification, monitoring and evaluation of the working performance of special materials in the whole life cycle. This research field covers the reviews, principles, and methods of the overall performance of special materials, including formation and preparation processes, whole-life performance monitoring, quantification and evaluation, optimal working condition design, etc. The main areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the manufacturing and processing of composites, the quantitative characterization of micro-morphology and the friction coefficient, the identification of material deformation and failure, the evalution of noise and vibration, oil detection technology for worn materials, numerical simulation and experimental methods for the evaluation of friction wear, dynamic response, and thermal load characteristics. We welcome the submission of papers addressing the monitoring, quantification and evaluation of the working performance of special materials in the whole life cycle, from the perspective of the development of applications.

The reduction of friction-induced noise is a crucial research area for enhancing vehicle comfort, and this paper proposes a method based on circular pit texture to achieve this goal. We conducted a long-term sliding friction test using a pin-on-disc friction and a wear test bench to verify the validity of this method. To compare the friction noise of different surfaces, texture units with varying line densities were machined on the surface of friction disk samples. The resulting friction-wear and noise characteristics of the samples were analyzed in conjunction with the microscopic morphology of the worn surfaces. The results indicate that surfaces with textures can delay the onset of squeal noise, and the pattern of its development differs from that of smooth surfaces. The noise reduction effect is most evident due to the proper distribution of textures that can form furrow-like wear marks at the wear interface. The finite element results demonstrate that this morphology can improve pressure distribution at the leading point and reduce the tendency of system instability. Full article
