Welcome to FFW 2021!
As Corona pandemic continues worldwide with travel restrictions, FFW 2021 will be held online, i.e. virtual conference without any physical participation. The online FFW 2021 consists of three parts: 1) publication of papers in the conference proceedings and 2) online presentation of papers at the time of the conference via MS Teams, and 3) a pre-recorded video or ppt/pdf presentation with audio, which will be posted online and used for the evaluation of best presentation award.
The overall objective of the conference is to bring together international scientists and engineers in academia and industry in fields related to Fracture Mechanics, Fatigue of Materials, Tribology and Wear of Materials. The conference covers industrial engineering applications of the above topics including theoretical and analytical methods, numerical simulations and experimental techniques. One of the aims of conference is to promote cooperation between international scientists and engineers from a large number of disciplines, who are involved in research related to Fracture, Fatigue and Wear.
