12th TWC International Wear Seminar
Wear testing in hard rock operations
March 18th 2021 at 14:00-16:00 (GMT+2)
Free online webinar

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.
