         Plenary Lecture
         Chair: K. Bobzin, RWTH Aachen University (Germany)

 10:20   Automotive Precision Components - A Challenge for Job Coating Service Companies
   -     A. Hieke (Sp), IonBond Netherlands BV, Venlo (Netherlands)
         Tribological coatings are an ever evolving component to a coatings supplier's portfolio . Research and development in
         this area should be conducted by first evaluating the contact (tribological) characteristics and then translating that in-
         formation to ideal coating properties. With this set of desirable properties a supplier can see which coating would
         make the best match or what can be modified in order to make that match.

         Regarding the choice of coatings, several parameters play a dominant role. It is important to differentiate between
         rolling, sliding, or mixed mode conditions. Also, the heat treatment conditions, the grinding operation after heat treat-
         ment and the resulting surface quality (e.g. roughness) of both contact partners should be taken in consideration.
         Post-treatments of vacuum deposited coatings are necessary in several occasions in order to avoid running-in failure

         The drawback of a-C:H coatings (“DLC”) is the sensitivity to crack initiation and crack propagation. Adequate support
         from base material, heat treatment, and base layers by PVD can avoid such cracking issues.

         The ongoing push for higher fuel efficiency, lower emission rates, higher power densities, lighter base materials, and
         longer warranty periods are drivers to increase the demand for surface enhancements of individual automotive com-
         ponents. The coatings prove their technical value, but the main challenge is to offer such coatings on an acceptable
         cost level.

     Room    Brüssel
             Plenary Lecture
             Chair: A. Fischer, University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany)

     11:00   Polymer Composites in Tribology
       -     K. Friedrich (Sp), Institut für Verbundwerkstoffe GmbH, Kaiserslautern (Germany)
             The use of polymers and polymer composites in various tribological situations has become state
             of the art. Nevertheless, further developments are still under way to explore new fields of appli-
             cation for these materials and to tailor their properties for more extreme loading conditions.

             This overview describes how to design polymeric composites in order to operate under low fric-
             tion and low wear against steel counterparts. Particular emphasis is focused on special fillers (in-
             cluding spherical nanoparticles), often in combination with classical tribo-fillers, for the
             tribological improvement of thermoplastics and thermosets. An attempt is made to predict their
             wear properties by a complex rule of mixtures, and to do systematic parameters studies by the
             use of artificial neural networks.

             The principle effects are demonstrated by describing practical examples of various fields of application. These include (a)
             high temperature polymer composites for sliding elements in textile drying machines, (b) friction torque limiters for dam-
             ped flywheel clutches in modern automotives, (c) epoxy based particulate composites for thick covers of calendar rollers
             in the paper making industry, and (d) thermoplastic nanocomposite coatings for hybrid bushings used in automotive
             components under the hood, to mention only a few.

 12:55   Wear Simulation with a Focus on Mild Wear in Rolling and Sliding Contacts
         S. Andersson (Sp), Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm (Sweden)

         Wear can be defined as the removal of material from solid surfaces as a result of mechanical ac-
         tion. The amount of wear of high performance contact surfaces is often quite small. The surfaces
         will then become glossy and the topography of the surfaces is partly very smooth. In order to ob-
         tain that advantageous contact condition, it is necessary that the form and the topography of the
         surfaces are good, that the materials and treatments are properly chosen and that the lubrication
         is adequate for the contact. This condition is often named mild and is what engineers normally
         strive for. However, sometimes severe wear may occur, giving rough or failed surfaces. A severe
         wear situation is not acceptable in any modern machine and must therefore be avoided. The pos-
         sibility to predict the amount of mild wear is generally thought to be rather difficult and uncer-
         tain. In this paper, however, some possibilities to predict mild wear in rolling and sliding contacts will be outlined. Typical
         contact surfaces of common machine elements with high performance rolling and sliding contacts are gears, cam mecha-
         nisms and roller bearings. If such rolling and sliding contacts are running under boundary or mixed lubricated conditions
         or if the lubricant is contaminated, some particles and/or asperities of the interacting surfaces may cause some plastic
         deformation and wear of the contact surfaces.

         Characteristic for a rolling and sliding contact is that the two interacting surfaces in a contact move with different speeds
         in the tangential direction. The Tribology Group at KTH Machine Design has worked with wear simulations of rolling and
         sliding contacts for a rather long time. The modeling principle they have used are based on:

         • The single point observation method and
         • The wear process as an initial-value process.
