Long name:
5th International Tribology Symposium of IFToMM
Short name:
Corresponding chair:
Alessandro Ruggiero
Venue short name:
Salerno - IT
Lloyd’s Baia Hotel /University of Salerno
06.05.2024 - 08.05.2024

This Symposium will cover the topical themes of tribology including: friction, wear, lubrication, lubricants, superlubricity, biotribology, biomimetics, tribomaterials, solid lubricants, surface engineering, tribotesting, tribological design and optimisation of machine components, modelling in tribology, contact mechanics, micro/nanotribology, tribotronics, tribology in power generating systems, metal working tribology, tribology in rail and road transport, and tribology in medicine.
Moreover, particular attention will be devoted to Green Tribology, defined as the science and technology of the tribological aspects of ecological balance and environmental and biological impacts, which represents a modern and interesting direction in scientific research, aimed to explore the role of tribological investigation regarding saving energy and, in general, the ecological environment. Recent investigations report that “…by applying for advances in Green Tribology in terms of new surfaces, materials and lubrication technologies, the total global energy loss in tribological systems could be decreased by 18% in the next 8 years and up to 40% in the next 15 years. An additional advantage of environmentally friendly Green Tribology is a significant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions and economic costs”
In the present and following years, these above topics will play key roles in the study of machines, mechanisms, medicine, and, in general, of all tribo-systems, generating high scientific impact on many areas of IFToMM scientific comunity knowledge, promoting research and development in the fields of machines and mechanisms by theoretical and experimental methods, along with their practical application.
