Wetting: Theory and Experiments, Two-Volume Set

1st Edition

Eli Ruckenstein, Gersh Berim
December 06, 2018

 Wetting: Theory and Experiments collates papers published by Professor Eli Ruckenstein and his coworkers on the theoretical and experimental investigation of wetting of solid surfaces. It contains six chapters, each of which is preceded by a short introduction. The papers are selected...

Wetting Theory

1st Edition

Eli Ruckenstein, Gersh Berim
December 06, 2018

 Wetting Theory discusses the numerous practical applications of wetting, such as preparing self-cleaning surfaces, manufacturing artificial blood vessels, and developing new lubricants and nonadhesive dishes. As part of Wetting: Theory and Experiments, Two-Volume Set, this volume provides new...

Wetting Experiments

1st Edition

Eli Ruckenstein, Gersh Berim
December 06, 2018

 Wetting Experiments contains experimental wetting studies related to biological problems, polymers, and catalysts. An understanding of wetting is important for numerous practical applications, such as preparing self-cleaning surfaces, manufacturing artificial blood vessels, and developing new...

Liquid Marbles: Formation, Characterization, and Applications

1st Edition

Andrew T. Tyowua
October 24, 2018

Certain small solid particles are surface-active at fluid interfaces and thus are able to stabilize materials previously considered impossible to stabilize in their absence. Liquid marbles, particle-coated non-sticking liquid droplets, represent one of these materials. Preparation of liquid marbles...

Friction, Wear, Lubrication: A Textbook in Tribology, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Kenneth C Ludema, Layo Ajayi
October 02, 2018

The second edition of a bestseller, this book introduces tribology in a way that builds students’ knowledge and understanding. It includes expanded information on topics such as surface characterization as well as recent advances in the field. The book provides additional descriptions of common...

Polymer Brushes: Substrates, Technologies, and Properties

1st Edition

Vikas Mittal
March 09, 2018

Polymer Brushes: Substrates, Technologies, and Properties covers various aspects of polymer brush technology, including synthesis, properties, performance, and applications. It presents both experimental details and theoretical insights to enable a better understanding of the brush system. After...

Friction-Induced Vibrations and Self-Organization: Mechanics and Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics of Sliding Contact

1st Edition

Michael Nosonovsky, Vahid Mortazavi
March 09, 2018

Many scientists and engineers do not realize that, under certain conditions, friction can lead to the formation of new structures at the interface, including in situ tribofilms and various patterns. In turn, these structures—usually formed by destabilization of the stationary sliding regime—can...

Adsorption and Diffusion in Nanoporous Materials

2nd Edition

Rolando M.A. Roque-Malherbe
February 26, 2018

Offering a materials science point of view, the author covers the theory and practice of adsorption and diffusion applied to gases in microporous crystalline, mesoporous ordered, and micro/mesoporous amorphous materials. Examples used include microporous and mesoporous molecular sieves, amorphous...

Nanoscience: Colloidal and Interfacial Aspects

1st Edition

Victor M. Starov
December 14, 2017

The common perception is that nanoscience is something entirely new, that it sprung forth whole and fully formed like some mythological deity. But the truth is that like all things scientific, nanoscience is the natural result of the long evolution of scientific inquiry. Following a historical...

Tribology and Applications of Self-Lubricating Materials

1st Edition

Emad Omrani, Pradeep K. Rohatgi, Pradeep L. Menezes
November 06, 2017

Tribology and Applications of Self-Lubricating Materials provides insight into the complex mechanisms behind the development of self-lubricating materials, which due to their ability to transfer embedded solid lubricants to the contact surface to decrease wear rate and friction in the absence of an...

The Molecular Theory of Adsorption in Porous Solids

1st Edition

Yu. K. Tovbin
October 13, 2017

In the adsorption phenomenon the substances from the external environment the gas or liquid are absorbed by a solid surface (adsorbent). Adsorption is used to separate gaseous and liquid mixtures, for drying and purification of gases and liquids. This reference broadly explores the calculation of...
