International Workshop



Adhesion and Friction: Simulation, Experiment, Applications


International Workshop

Technische Universität Berlin, November 13-16, 2017


Prof. Dr. Valentin L. Popov &

Prof. Dr. Sergey G. Psakhie



Adhesion is a phenomenon that plays an important role in many technical applications as well as in biological systems and medical applications. Many aspects of this phenomenon are still not well understood. The workshop is intended to provide an intensive exchange of information on the state of research on the rapidly developing area of "adhesion and friction", whereby "friction" also means "internal friction" (and thus adhesion of elastomers). Invited are representatives of physically and mechanically oriented research as well as representatives of the fields of application - in mechanical engineering, biology and medicine. The targeted applications are adhesion both on the macroscopic level and on the scale of cells (which is of great importance, for example, in cancer research) and even on the scale of individual molecules


·      Influence of macroscopic shape on adhesion
