Solid Mechanics and Tribology

Several lines of research are developed related to the experimental, theoretical and computational study of the mechanics of solid materials. In particular: wear, friction and lubrication and structural mechanics in general.

- Tribological behavior of modified polyoleafins
- Soft, self-lubricating nanoparticle coatings
- Tribological evaluation of materials at high temperature
- Computational models in solid continuum mechanics, Contact and friction dynamics.
- Structural mechanics
- Stochastic models and quantification of uncertainty in elastic and viscoelastic mechanical parts and structures.

High-tech services are also provided with companies, developing tribological evaluation methodologies that can even include tailor-made equipment.
