The scope of the colloquium is to review current advances in the study of contact interaction, friction and fracture of bodies with coatings. Coated bodies are widely used in tribo-systems to decrease energy losses and to increase wear resistance. The different technologies used for coating implantation produce coatings with various mechanical and geometrical characteristics and different conditions at the interface. The stress field, temperature distribution and fracture of coated bodies depends essentially on the coating properties.
Major Topics
● rolling/sliding contact of bodies coated by elastic, visco-elastic or plastic layers
● lubricant contact of coated bodies;
● effect of roughness in contact of coated bodies;
● contact interaction of bodies covered by inhomogeneous coatings and multilayers;
● wear contact problems for coated bodies;
● fracture of coated bodies;
● experimental study of contact, friction and fracture of coated bodies.
