NORDTRIB 2016

The 17th Nordic Symposium on Tribology - NORDTRIB 2016

 

14th - 17th June 2016 - Aulanko, Hämeenlinna, Finland

The NORDTRIB symposium is held biennially in one of the Nordic countries: Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Over the years the Symposium has evolved into a highly regarded venue for the international tribology community. NORDTRIB is intended as a forum where researchers and developers from universities, research institutes and industry can present their latest contributions and also discuss field-related issues.

In 1984, the NORDTRIB symposium was held for the first time in Finland. In 2016 the 17th NORDTRIB Symposium will take place in Finland in the City of Hämeenlinna. Conference venue is Spa Hotel Rantasipi Aulanko in Aulanko. NORDTRIB 2016 will be hosted by the Finnish Society for Tribology and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd.

 

The registration is now open.

 

Special IEA session on Tribology in Transportation

On Wednesday between 11.30 and 17.40 three special sessions on Tribology in Transportation are arranged jointly by NORDTRIB and International Energy Agency (IEA) programme on Advanced Materials in Transportation (AMT). The sessions are open to all NORDTRIB delegates.

The purpose of the IEA AMT programme is to facilitate the introduction of advanced materials to enable the development of energy efficient and environmentally friendly technologies for motorised road vehicles. This is accomplished through joint developmental research, information exchange, international round robin studies and demonstration projects. Research organisations from the following countries have signed up to join IEA AMT: Germany, United States, Canada, China, United Kingdom, Australia, Finland, Israel and Korea.

The three IEA sessions will present research results from the AMT programme on the topics: Surface topography effects on friction and wear, Thin coatings and their modelling, and Surface texturing and lubricated wear.
