Research Area 1 - Friction Optimized Devices

Friction Optimized Devices

The research activities are focussed on the frictional performance of various devices and processes with special regard to surface characteristics and material properties.

The properties of interacting surfaces and materials play a crucial role not only in devices with desired low friction, like engines and bearings, but also in high friction applications, like brakes and clutches, as well in various machining and manufacturing processes.

The employed methods comprise numerical multi scale simulations, materials and surface characterization at the nanometre scale, novel diagnostic techniques and advanced tribotesting methods.
