Several developments in materials science have expanded the quest for corrosion and wear resistance of ceramics. Examples are the advance of biomaterials and biomimetics, which necessitate finely engineered surface and volume structures, causing new problems for their reliability due to contact mechanics and/or chemical attacks already in mild wear conditions. Likewise, the higher performance capabilities of new material classes such as hybrid composites from organic and ceramic materials shifts the application limits to be defined by tribologic and corrosion resistance. Environmental barrier coatings have become an important subject for corrosion and wear studies.  Revisions of old concepts bring new life to the development of applications for cement-based materials with according demands for the characterization under wear and adverse environmental conditions.  New lightweight structures from 3D generative manufacturing and other porous, structured and multiphase materials bring new challenges for the modelling of materials under chemical and mechanical loading.This symposium, that follows the ones on the same subject of previous CIMTEC Conferences, will update progress in fundamental aspects and mechanistic understanding at micro- and nano-scale of the corrosion, friction and wear behaviour in a variety of high demanding conditions. It shall also outline basic criteria and technical achievements in devising routes for improved corrosion and tribologic resistance.
Materials covered include: i) oxide and non-oxide ceramics in form of thin films, coatings, composites and bulk material; ii) hybrid materials: metal-ceramic and polymer-ceramic based composites and nanocomposites; iii) fullerenes, graphene, diamond, DLCs and other carbon-based materials.
Furthermore, we seek for contributions which demonstrate state-of–the-art and improvements in the modelling and simulation of corrosion and wear across the different orders of time and length scales and covering structural and microstructural studies linked to property changes.
