The seminar jointly organized by Tampere Wear Center and PerforMat network concentrated on hard rock tribology with emphasize in wear testing methods for abrasive, impact-abrasive, and erosion wear in mining and mineral handling. Moreover, the combined effects of wear and corrosion, tribocorrosion, on various industrial cases were presented.
