Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure for us to invite you to participate in this fretting Special Issue of Metals. The objective of this Special Issue is to give an overall picture of the latest developments and current research in the field of fretting fatigue/wear by scientists and engineers from all over the world. Different types of points of view should contribute to this Special Issue, from academic and industrial practitioners. The topics relevant to this Special Issue include, but not restricted to, are the following:

  • Experimental results in fretting fatigue/wear
  • Theories and mechanisms of fretting fatigue/wear
  • Modelling in fretting fatigue/wear
  • Applications and case studies
  • Palliatives against fretting fatigue/wear

The development of this special Issue coincides in time with the 9th International Symposium on Fretting Fatigue (http://isff9.org) to be held in the city of Seville, 1–3 April, 2019. This is the 9th edition in a series of successful symposiums dedicated to this topic, held every three years. Therefore, all works presented at this symposium are also invited for submission in this Special Issue.

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. Metals 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 1200 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.

The analysis of fretting fatigue plays an important role in many engineering fields. The presence of heterogeneity may affect the performance of a machine or a structure, including its lifetime and stability. In this paper, the effect of randomly distributed micro inclusions on the fretting fatigue behaviour of heterogeneous materials is analysed using the finite element method (FEM) for different sizes, shape and properties of inclusions. The effect of micro inclusions on macroscopic material properties is also considered by representative volume element (RVE). It is shown that the influence of micro inclusions on macroscopic material properties cannot be ignored, and the shape and size of the inclusions have less effect on the macroscopic material properties as compared to the material properties of inclusion and volume ratio. In addition, various parameters of inclusions have little effect on the peak tensile stress, which remains almost the same as homogeneous material. Peak shear stress occurs at many places inside the specimen, which can result in multiple cracking points inside the specimen, as well as at the contact surface. Moreover, the stress band formed by the stress coupling between adjacent inclusions may have an important influence on the direction of crack growth. Full article
