G02 Wear and Erosion
Pre-registration requested to attend this meeting.


The Third International Symposium on Tribo-Corrosion will be held April 19-20, 2012. Sponsored by ASTM Committee G02 on Wear and Erosion, the symposium will be held at Georgia Institute of Technology, in conjunction with the April 18, 2012 standards development meetings of Committee.

The 2012 International Symposium on Tribo-Corrosion is the third such event to be held worldwide, but the first one of its kind to be held in the United States. The focus of this multi-disciplinary forum is to bring together basic and applied researchers who are addressing the challenge of understanding how surface degradation processes like mechanical wear and chemical attack (corrosion) interact with each other. Over forty scheduled presentations will span broad technology areas – from dental and body implants to industrial machinery, and from seals and bearings to nuclear power plants. ASTM Committee G02 on Wear and Erosion is proud to sponsor Tribo-Corrosion 2012 in conjunction with its spring business meetings at the Georgia Institute of Technology (GATECH) in Atlanta. The Committee G2 meeting will be held on 17-18 April, and the symposium will follow it on 19-20 April, beginning with a welcome reception in the evening of 18 April.

The language of the symposium will be English.
