Good and Evil of Tribological Engineering Surfaces

4 Feb 2020

Professor Tomasz Liskiewicz will discuss the first systematic study of friction by Leonardo da Vinci, and explain the impact of tribology on the global economy. Tomasz will present several examples of his tribological research related to the fundamental understanding of fretting wear phenomenon. He will explain how surface engineering plays a key role in enabling future tribological technologies by providing smart functional surfaces with advanced properties. Finally, he will present the future trends of tribology and surface engineering in the context of the fourth industrial revolution.
