Wetting: Theory and Experiments, Two-Volume Set

1st Edition

Featured

Eli Ruckenstein, Gersh Berim
December 6, 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 accordin...

Local Gradient Theory for Dielectrics: Fundamentals and Applications

1st Edition

Olha Hrytsyna, Vasyl Kondrat
December 27, 2019

This book is devoted to the development of the local gradient theory of dielectrics. It presents a brief description of the known approaches to the construction of generalized (integral- and gradient-type) continuous theories of dielectrics. It describes a new continuum–thermodynamic approach to...

Interfacial Mechanics: Theories and Methods for Contact and Lubrication

1st Edition

Jane Wang, Dong Zhu
December 17, 2019

Understanding the characteristics of material contact and lubrication at tribological interfaces is of great importance to engineering researchers and machine designers. Traditionally, contact and lubrication are separately studied due to technical difficulties, although they often coexist in...

Surface Engineering by Friction-Assisted Processes: Methods, Materials, and Applications

1st Edition

B. Ratna Sunil
October 16, 2019

Here is a comprehensive resource that compiles extensive descriptions of friction stir processing, fabrication of surface metal matrix composites, and friction surfacing into one volume. The book is separated into four sections, beginning with a discussion of surface tailoring of metals by friction...

Surfactants in Tribology, Volume 6

1st Edition

Girma Biresaw, K.L. Mittal
August 27, 2019

Surfactants play a critical role in Tribology controlling friction, wear, and lubricant properties such as emulsification, demulsification, bioresistance, oxidation resistance, rust prevention and corrosion resistance. This is a critical topic for new materials and devices particularly those built...

Wetting and Spreading Dynamics, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Victor M. Starov, Manuel G. Velarde
July 09, 2019

Wetting and Spreading Dynamics explains how surface forces acting at the three-phase contact line determine equilibrium, hysteresis contact angles, and other equilibrium and kinetics features of liquids when in contact with solids or with other immiscible liquids. It examines the interaction of...

Nanoimprinting and its Applications

1st Edition

Akihiro Miyauchi
June 17, 2019

Nanoimprinting has grown rapidly since it was proposed in 1995 by Prof. Chou. Now machines, resins, and molds for nanoimprinting are commercially available worldwide. The application fields of nanoimprinting are expanding to not only electronics but also optics, biology, and energy because...

Industrial Biomimetics

1st Edition

Akihiro Miyauchi, Masatsugu Shimomura
June 10, 2019

Biomimetics is an innovative paradigm shift based on biodiversity for sustainability. Biodiversity is not only the result of evolutionary adaption but also the optimized solution of an epic combinatorial chemistry for sustainability, because the diversity has been acquired by biological processes...

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...
