Soft Tribology II

Institute of Physics, 76 Portland Place, London, W1B 1NT

Compliant tribological contacts are all around us, with obvious examples including tires, windscreen wipers, and seals. In addition to this, there are a multitude of soft contacts within the human body. There are clearly many practical benefits associated with compliant surfaces, such as large contact areas and low pressures. 

However, the study of soft contacts is often challenging due to the complexities that arise from highly deformable, dissipative, and non-reflective components. This one-day meeting will focus on new research that tackles these challenges. Presentations cover areas ranging from the tribology of polymers to brain surgery, and include new modelling and experimental techniques. See the full programme.

This meeting is free to attend however we do ask that you register in advance via the website.
