T2S3: Energy-efficient Advanced Bearings and Wearresistant Materials

Register for 11th CMCEE


Ceramic technologies for sustainable development


Controlling friction and wear of ceramic materials and components are key technologies for innovation in energy saving and environmental protection. For example, ceramic bearings are strongly desired for use in aerospace, automobile, wind turbine, and semiconductor production. High stiffness, high strength, high fracture toughness, lightweight, low thermal expansion coefficient, high thermal conductivity, and high corrosion resistance are needed in these ceramic bearings and wear resistant components. Furthermore, low cost processing to make large components and tribology at high temperatures in extreme conditions are also important in order to expand the application fields.


Proposed session topics:

  • Ceramic materials for bearing and wear-resistant applications
  • Thermal durability, lightweight, low expansion coefficient, high hardness, toughness and strength, toughness, and high corrosion resistance
  • Microstructural control for high low friction coefficient and high wear resistance
  • Green-wear materials for renewable energy technology
  • Low-cost processing to make large components
  • Tribology at high temperatures in extreme conditions
  • Triboluminescence
  • Standardization for wear-resistant materials
  • Solid lubricant
