The TFCS group of FEMTO-ST institute is studying the tribological performance of Bulk Metallic Glasses (BMGs) through experimental tests in close collaboration with an european company producing BMGs of various compositions in series.
The trainee will reinforce the project team associated with this study in the framework of the TriboRAMA project beginning on February 2020.
The trainee will conduct sliding and rolling friction tests using two instrumented tribometers. These tests will be carried out on various BMG compositions and by varying contact conditions.
Following these tests, the trainee will characterize the frictional response and the friction-induced surface modifications to o quantify the tribological performance of BMGs according to various contact conditions
