Special Issue on Electric Vehicle Tribology
The scope of this special issue includes work on lubricant formulations, materials, corrosion, and wear mechanisms specific to electric vehicles. Research on electrical connectors or other tribological components used specifically in EVs (i.e., shock absorbers, tires, etc.) is also of interest.
The new design characteristics, materials and mechanisms related to the understanding of the tribological (friction, lubrication and/or wear) performance of components for EVs will be considered for publication. Papers reporting results that do not contribute to the direct application to EVs will not be accepted.
THE SCOPE OF THIS ISSUE INCLUDES BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO:
- EV lubricants
- Wear of EV components
- EHL under an electrical field
- EV gear efficiency and durability
- Electrically induced bearing damage (EIBD)
- Predictive modeling of shaft voltage and tribological interface
- Material life models
- Greases for EV
- Copper motor coil corrosion
- Electrical connectors
