New offering: AEM/STLE Webinar

This month, AEM and STLE are working together to provide a webinar to both of our audiences. As a bonus, this webinar is offered for FREE as a preview for future events, so take advantage while you can!

Event Details
Title: Compressibility of Liquids
Date/Time: Thursday, June 30, 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.


Dr. Ashlie Martini, Purdue University

Dr. Scott Bair, Georgia Tech
Length: 90 minute presentation, with 15 minute Q&A built in
Hosted by AEM, using GoToMeeting
Topics covered:

  1. What is compressibility and why do we need to be able to characterize it for tribological applications?

  2. The equations of state used to describe compressibility

  3. Experimental techniques for measuring compressibility

  4. Pros and cons of the traditional approach

  5. Introduction of molecular dynamics simulation of liquid compressibility

  6. Comparison of model-predicted and experimentally measured compressibility

  7. Differences between bulk and thin film compressibility

  8. Pros and cons of the new approach, and future directions

Register HERE - and enjoy!


  1. IMPORTANT UPDATE: There will be only one presenter for this event - Dr. Ashlie Martini. If you have any questions, please let us know.

  2. This inaugural AEM/STLE webinar was a well-attended, well-received, and all around successful event! We look forward to future collaborations with AEM members and staff. Ashlie did a fantastic job with the topic, and the reviews reflected that.

    "Prof. Martini presented a very complex topic in a clear and comprehensive way."
    "[This webinar provided] a lot of useful data for further research and engineering use."
    "The presentation was informative and professionally presented."
    "I think that Ashlie did a good job of presenting a highly complex subject in a manner that was easily understood."
