Adrian Harris will be presenting a masterclass on "Applied nano-mechanics for the modern automotive industry" at the heat treatment and surface engineering conference which is to be held in Chennai, India from the 16 – 18th May 2013.
In operation, components in a wide variety of applications undergo vibrational wear. Fretting tests are regularly run on the macro-scale in order to examine material behaviour under these conditions. The nano-fretting module, which is now available on the Vantage, allows investigation of fretting and reciprocating wear at the micro/nano scale, filling the previous metrology gap.
On behalf of the organisers, Prof Ben Beake (MML/Chair, IOP Tribology Group) and Prof Mark Gee (NPL/IOP Tribology Group) we would like to invite you to a one-day IOP meeting at NPL highlighting recent developments in nanomechanics.
