Course description

The short course "Contact mechanics and tribology" unites contact mechanics, tribology and computational methods in order to provide a consistent and comprehensive framework for the following developing contact related branches of science. The course consists of 6 lectures, 3 seminars and the practical work with the Finite Element Analysis package ZéBuLoN. The lectures are given by people working or worked at Centre des Matériaux (MINES ParisTech) on contact related topics, the seminars are given by experts in microtomography, aeronautical contact related issues and coating manufacturing and the practical work is performed with assistance of PhD students working and developping the FEA package ZéBuLoN.
