Journal of Friction and Wear is a most complete source of information in CIS countries on the state of research in the field of friction and wear, lubrication, and their applications. Remit of the journal corresponds the speciality 05.02.04 «Friction and wear in machines» of Higher Attestation Commissions of Republic of Belarus and of the Russian Federation

Topics covered in the journal are:

  • Friction physics and tribosystem thermodynamics;
  • Surface characterization;
  • Wear monitoring;
  • Surface engineering;
  • Nanotribology;
  • Contact mechanics;
  • Metal fatigue, wear susceptibility measurement;
  • Wear-resistant materials, coatings;
  • Tribology of friction pairs, durability analysis;
  • Bearings: contact interaction, thermoelasticity;
  • Lubricants, surfactants, grease fillers;
  • Tribological design, optimization, testing;
  • Tribology of alloys, self-lubricating polymers, antifriction materials;
  • Biotribology

Today the Journal of Friction and Wear remains the primary source of information on tribological studies in the Former Soviet Union. The journal is an indispensable reference for an extensive audience of specialists in mechanics, physics, chemistry, materials science, production engineering and lubrication engineering.
