Fundamentals of the Mechanical and Tribological Properties of Interfaces

75th A.C.S. Colloid and Surface Science Symposium
Carnegie Mellon University
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
June 10-13, 2001

Symposium Organizers:

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaig

Adhesion, friction, and lubrication are extremely important phenomena having both a chemical and physical origin. This symposium covers developments in the study and understanding of the relationships between the chemical, mechanical and tribological properties of interfaces. Presentations are requested that discuss adhesion, friction, and lubrication at interfaces of all types. Our hope is to establish a discussion among researchers from a wide variety of backgrounds in an attempt to identify chemical and engineering concepts that are being applied to these problems.

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
Tribological measurements
Theory of interfacial forces
Surface chemistry of lubricants
Rheology of lubricants
Wear of solid surfaces

This symposium will feature a keynote lecture by
Prof. Scott Perry, Department of Chemistry, University of Houston
"Modification of Metal Carbide Tribology Through Reactive Adsorption of Small Molecules"
