Tribology Modelling: Friction and wear prediction across the scales

Date: 13-Sep-17 to 13-Sep-17
Location: National Motorcycle Museum / United Kingdom
Category: Technology Engineering Conferences & Trade Fairs

The must-attend Tribology Modelling seminar will enable you to enhance your understanding of the latest methods and approaches in predicting friction and wear in tribological systems. Gain valuable insights from key figures within industry and academia, who will address developments that can be applied to your day-to-day activities and enable optimisation of resources.

Key programme highlights include:
• Take into account realistic lubricant properties from lubrication models with Shell Global Solutions (UK)
• Gain insights into molecular modelling of lubricants and additives from Imperial College London
• SKF Research and Technology Development discuss modelling tribology of rolling bearings
• Find out how MAHLE Engine Systems UK Ltd are moving from lubrication theory to practical engine applications
• Understand tribofilms and their effect in boundary lubrication modelling with the University of Leeds
