Special Issue "Tribology: Friction and Wear of Engineering Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: surface engineering; tribology; friction; wear; lubrication; contact mechanics
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Coatings: Tribological Behavior of Functional Surface: Models and Methods
Special Issue in Materials: Advances in Surface Topography Measurement and Analysis
Tribology is the multidisciplinary science of rubbing surfaces. It deals with the design, friction, wear, and lubrication of interacting surfaces in relative motion. Tribology is associated with a wide range of scientific disciplines like reliability, materials science, and diagnostics. The subjects of tribology are of great significance for engineers. Reduction of frictional losses will lead to an improvement in economy.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect high-quality research papers, short communications, and review articles that focus on tribology of engineering materials, including contact mechanics and surface engineering. We are looking forward to receiving your submissions.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
