Michigan Metrology Short Course October 30-31

Dr. Don Cohen of Michigan Metrology will be leading a two-day course in surface roughness, wear, finish and friction on October 30-31, 2019, in Livonia, MI. The course is designed for scientists, engineers and technicians working in automotive, aerospace, materials, polymers, etc. and designed to benefit both relative novices and advanced metrology users.

Michigan Metrology, experts in solving problems related to surface roughness, wear, finish and friction, will share their expertise in a two-day course, October 30-31, 2019, in Livonia, MI.

"This course is designed for scientists, engineers and technicians working in automotive, aerospace, materials, polymers and other fields," said Don Cohen, PhD, who will be leading the two-day workshop. "We have seen a great desire in recent years for more education in surface metrology and tribology. This class offers material to benefit both relative novices and advanced metrology users to further their understanding of these essential topics."

The course material will include:

  • Measuring roughness, waviness and form
  • Introduction to surface measurement instruments
  • How to correctly set filters for texture measurements
  • An overview of data analysis techniques and tools
  • Definitions and applications of surface texture parameters
  • Techniques for specifying surface texture
  • Relating surface texture to wear, sealing, leaks and other functionality
  • Surface energy, adhesion and texture
  • The mechanics of dry sliding
  • Characterizing rolling friction
  • The fundamentals of lubrication.

In addition to classroom sessions, the workshop will include hands-on training with surface measurement and tribology instruments from Bruker Corporation and other companies. Attendees may bring one or two samples to measure in order to address their specific metrology requirements and challenges.

"We added the October course this year due to overwhelming popularity at our annual spring workshop," continued Dr. Cohen. "We anticipate a full house for the event and look forward to lively discussions and exchange of knowledge."
