The Italian Association of Tribology AIT organizes the Fourth edition of the AIT’s Summer School on Tribology.
The summer school will be held from September 4th through September 8th 2023 at University of Salerno, Campus in Fisciano - Department of Industrial Engineering; classroom 118, 1st floor of building E.

The Summer School is addressed to master degree and doctoral students, as well as to post-doc students, technical staff of companies/research centres/universities, etc.

The school program is scheduled with more modules which deal with different topics within the broad field of tribology science:

- static contacts and sliding of elastic/viscoelastic contacts;

- testing of frictional and wear behaviour with focus on tribometers design and experiments;

- rolling friction, EHL, gearbox lubrication and industrial failure cases;

- surfaces and topography and influence on contact mechanics.

delivered by the following teachers:

prof. dr. Jacek Łubiński | Gdańsk University of Technology - September 4th 9.30-14.30 (Friction induced vibrations in sliding friction, practical exploits of an experimenter, tribology in practice - industrial analyses)
prof. dr. Attila Csobán | University of Pannonia - September 5th 9.30-14.30 (Lubrication of gearbox, modelling, testing, case of failures in industry)
prof. dr. Mihaela Buciumeanu | Dunarea de Jos University of Galati - September 6th 9.30-14.30 (Surfaces and topographic state, elements of contact mechanics, studied cases, analysis of some advanced materials for tribological applications)
prof. dr. Giuseppe Carbone | Politecnico di Bari - September 7th 9.30-14.30 (Static contacts and sliding of elastic and viscoelestic contacts)

Final discussion, school concluding remarks and (optional) final test for the assessment certificate (Ph.D. course credits) on September 8th.

All the participants will receive the certificate of attendance.

Registration fee: 250,00 € for AIT non-members, free for AIT members (15,00 €/year AIT membership fee for M.Sc. and Ph.D. students):
