The seminar jointly organized by Tampere Wear Center and PerforMat network concentrates on hard rock tribology with emphasize in wear testing methods for abrasive, impact-abrasive, and erosion wear in mining and mineral handling. Moreover, the combined effects of wear and corrosion, tribocorrosion, on various industrial cases are presented.
The seminar is free of charge and arranged on-line. The participation link will be sent before the seminar for registered participants.
