BiographyDr. Ahmed Abdelbary (A. Abdelbary) currently is a chief engineering and tribology consultant for the Egyptian government. He holds a B.Sc.(Eng.) from Military Technical College in 1994. He received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in polymer tribology from Alexandria University in 2003 and 2011 respectively. Working with Prof. M.N. Abouelwafa, from 1999 to 2011, he explored tribological behavior of polymers under typical loading conditions and found many promising results. Much of this work obtained a better understanding of the fatigue wear mechanism of polymers. Currently he is investigating the effect of different fillers (Steel Slag and Graphite) on the tribological behavior of polymer composites.
He is a full member of the Egyptian Society of Tribology EGTRIB and received the title of "Engineering Consultant" from Egypt Syndicate for Engineers in 2016. His areas of technical and on-field expertise extend to design and manufacture of many mechanical and tribo-systems. His biography has been included in Who's Who in the World® 2015 (32nd Edition), and he lastly received the 2017 Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award.
He is the author of two books; Wear of Polymers and Composites, Woodhead Publishing, Oxford, 2014, and Extreme Tribology, CRC Press, 2020. He is the author of several research papers on tribology of polymers, in well-reputed engineering journals. He has been appointed as one of the editorial board members in International Journal of Materials Science and Applications and Advances in Materials and a reviewer for many international journals.
