Friction And Wear Of Engineering Materials
Tribology: Friction and Wear of Engineering Materials, Second Edition, covers the fundamentals of tribology and the tribological response of all types of materials, including metals, ceramics, and polymers.
This fully updated book provides a solid scientific foundation without relying on extensive mathematics, an approach that will allow readers to formulate appropriate solutions when faced with practical problems. Topics considered include the fundamentals of surface topography and contact, friction, lubrication, and wear.
The book also presents up-to-date discussions on environmental issues, hardness and hardness testing (including nanoindentation), frictional heating, lubricant chemistry, and surface engineering/coating methods, and will be valuable to engineers in the field of tribology, mechanical engineers, physicists, chemists, materials scientists, and even students.
- Provides an excellent general introduction to friction, wear, and lubrication materials
- Presents extensive coverage of tribological test methods, with a focus on the selection of tests and the conditions most appropriate for service conditions
- Includes numerous case studies on biotribology, brake and clutch materials, cutting tools, and materials for resistance to abrasion and erosion
