Analysis Of Friction-Induced-Vibrations And Relative Tribological And Dynamic Issues

Universities and Institutes of Italy


August 19, 2021


  • Organisation/Company: Sapienza Università di Roma
  • Research Field: Engineering › Mechanical engineering
  • Researcher Profile: First Stage Researcher (R1) Recognised Researcher (R2) Established Researcher (R3) Leading Researcher (R4)
  • Application Deadline: 19/08/2021 23:59 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: Italy › Roma
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 40
  • Offer Starting Date: 01/12/2021
  • The research activities will concern both experimental and numerical analyses of friction-induced-vibrations related issues (friction noise, self-excited contact vibrations). The main focus of the research will be the analysis of contact dynamic instabilities (mode coupling, stick-slip), on both dry contacts and contacts lubricated with grease. Measurement campaigns will be developed, by both improving the experimental test benches, present at the DIMA laboratories, and reproducing the contact instabilities on such systems. At the same time, finite element analyses will be developed as support to the understanding. Finite element software will be used for simulating the nonlinear contact interactions and investigating the coupling between the system dynamics and the contact response. Collaborations with international and industrial partners will be expected by transferring the fundamental research achievements to applications
