Surfactants in Tribology, Volume 2

1st Edition

Girma Biresaw, K.L. Mittal
April 04, 2011

The premier symposium on Surfactants in Tribology, held in Seoul in 2006, was an enormously successful event that generated a high level of interest in the topic, leading to the publication of the first volume in this series in 2008. The tremendous response was echoed at the follow-up symposium in...

Modeling and Analytical Methods in Tribology

1st Edition

Ilya I. Kudish, Michael Judah Covitch
July 20, 2010

Improving our understanding of friction, lubrication, and fatigue, Modeling and Analytical Methods in Tribology presents a fresh approach to tribology that links advances in applied mathematics with fundamental problems in tribology related to contact elasticity, fracture mechanics, and fluid film...

Tribology of Interface Layers

1st Edition

Hooshang Heshmat
May 25, 2010

To this point, the field of lubrication has been conceptualized using several noncontiguous modes of operation — boundary, fluid-film, and dry and solid lubrication. Engineers and analysts have long had to deal with old evidence that many tribological devices, such as flat surface and centrally...

Integral Approaches to Tribo-Testing in Mechanical Engineering

1st Edition

Har Prashad
October 05, 2009

With in depth coverage of multifaceted problems and their solutions, this book reviews nano/micro studies of different coatings, bioengineering, lubricants and additives, system problems including reliability assessment and new testing and diagnosis approaches in various dimensions. The book...

1st Edition

Robert M. Gresham, George E. Totten
October 24, 2008

A-Z Guide for Maximum Cost Reduction and Increased Equipment Reliability To remain globally competitive, today’s manufacturing operations have greatly improved, but there is one last link in the advancement evolution. The reliability of manufacturing equipment must be improved in order to maximize...

Friction Science and Technology: From Concepts to Applications, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Peter J. Blau
October 20, 2008

"Should have broad appeal in many kinds of industry, ranging from automotive to computers—basically any organization concerned with products having moving parts!" —David A. Rigney, Materials Science and Engineering Department, Ohio State University, Columbus, USA In-Depth Coverage of...

Surfactants in Tribology, Volume 1

1st Edition

Girma Biresaw, K.L. Mittal
June 04, 2008

Surfactants play a variety of critical roles in tribology. In addition to controlling friction and wear, they also allow for control of a wide range of properties of lubricants, such as emulsification/demulsification, bioresistance, oxidation resistance, and rust/corrosion prevention. This book...

Analyzing Friction in the Design of Rubber Products and Their Paired Surfaces

1st Edition

Robert Horigan Smith
March 24, 2008

Taking a mechanistic approach that emphasizes the physical behavior of rubber as it slides, Analyzing Friction in the Design of Rubber Products and Their Paired Surfaces integrates the engineering and scientific evidence demonstrating that the laws of metallic friction do not apply to rubber. The...

Kinematic Geometry of Surface Machining

1st Edition

Stephen P. Radzevich
December 14, 2007

The principle of Occam’s razor loosely translates to “the simplest solution is often the best”. The author of Kinematic Geometry of Surface Machining utilizes this reductionist philosophy to provide a solution to the highly inefficient process of machining sculptured parts on multi-axis NC machines...

Electrical Contacts: Fundamentals, Applications and Technology

1st Edition

Milenko Braunovic, Nikolai K. Myshkin, Valery V. Konchits
December 15, 2006

Various factors affect the performance of electrical contacts, including tribological, mechanical, electrical, and materials aspects. Although these behaviors have been studied for many years, they are not widely used or understood in practice. Combining approaches used across the globe, Electrical...
