Sponsor of MSE 2018: Lubricants

Lubricants (ISSN 2075-4442) is an international, peer-reviewed open access journal. It publishes regular research papers, reviews, letters and communications covering all aspects of tribology, including the study and application of the principles of friction, lubrication and wear.

Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish experimental, theoretical and computational results that provide new insight and understanding into the scientific and technical basis for lubrication and related phenomenon. There is no restriction on the length of the papers.

Lubricants is dedicated to the field of Tribology and closely related disciplines. This includes the fundamentals of the following topics:

  • Lubrication, comprising hydrostatics, hydrodynamics, elastohydrodynamics, mixed and boundary regimes of lubrication
  • Friction, comprising viscous shear, Newtonian and non-Newtonian traction, boundary friction
  • Wear, including adhesion, abrasion, tribo-corrosion, scuffing and scoring
  • Cavitation and erosion
  • Sub-surface stressing, fatigue spalling, pitting, micro-pitting
  • Contact Mechanics: elasticity, elasto-plasticity, adhesion, viscoelasticity, poroelasticity, coatings and solid lubricants, layered bonded and unbonded solids
  • Surface Science: topography, tribo-film formation, lubricant–surface combination, surface texturing, micro-hydrodynamics, micro-elastohydrodynamics
  • Rheology: Newtonian, non-Newtonian fluids, dilatants, pseudo-plastics, thixotropy, shear thinning
  • Physical chemistry of lubricants, boundary active species, adsorption, bonding
