This introductory yet comprehensive book presents the fundamental concepts on the analysis and design of tribological systems. It is a unique blend of scientific principles, mathematical formulations and engineering practice. The text discusses properties and measurements of engineering surfaces, surface contact geometry and contact stresses. Besides, it deals with adhesion, friction, wear, lubrication and related interfacial pheno-mena. It also highlights recent developments like nanotribology and fractal analysis with great clarity. The book is intended as a text for senior under-graduate and postgraduate students of mechanical engineering, production/industrial engineering, metallurgy and material science. It can also serve as a reference for practising engineers and designers.
Engineering tribology is a subfield of mechanical engineering and it also has elements of material sciences. It is concerned with the topics like wear, lubrication and friction. It studies the changes and differences which occur in bodies when they interact while being in motion. The aim of this text is to provide students with the basic concepts of engineering tribology. It is complied in such a way that it gives in-depth knowledge of the fundamentals of this subject to the students. Some of the diverse topics covered in this book address the varied branches that fall under this category. This textbook, with its detailed analyses and data, will prove immensely beneficial to students involved in this area at various levels.
As with the previous edition, the third edition of Engineering Tribology provides a thorough understanding of friction and wear using technologies such as lubrication and special materials. Tribology is a complex topic with its own terminology and specialized concepts, yet is vitally important throughout all engineering disciplines, including mechanical design, aerodynamics, fluid dynamics and biomedical engineering. This edition includes updated material on the hydrodynamic aspects of tribology as well as new advances in the field of biotribology, with a focus throughout on the engineering applications of tribology. This book offers an extensive range if illustrations which communicate the basic concepts of tribology in engineering better than text alone. All chapters include an extensive list of references and citations to facilitate further in-depth research and thorough navigation through particular subjects covered in each chapter. * Includes newly devised end-of-chapter problems * Provides a comprehensive overview of the mechanisms of wear, lubrication and friction in an accessible manner designed to aid non-specialists. * Gives a reader-friendly approach to the subject using a graphic illustrative method to break down the typically complex problems associated with tribology.

The surface coating field is a rapidly developing area of science and technology that offers new methods and techniques to control friction and wear. New coating types are continually being developed and the potential applications in different industrial fields are ever growing, ranging from machine components and consumer products to medical instruments and prostheses. This book provides an extensive review of the latest technology in the field, addressing techniques such as physical and chemical vapour deposition, the tribological properties of coatings, and coating characterization and performance evaluation techniques. Eleven different cases are examined in close detail to demonstrate the improvement of tribological properties and a guide to selecting coatings is also provided. This second edition is still the only monograph in the field to give a holistic view of the subject and presents all aspects, including test and performance data as well as insights into mechanisms and interactions, thus providing the level of understanding vital for the practical application of coatings. * An extensive review of the latest developments in the field of surface coatings * Presents both theory and practical applications * Includes a guide for selecting coatings
Covering the fundamental principles of bearing selection, design, and tribology, this book discusses basic physical principles of bearing selection, lubrication, design computations, advanced bearings materials, arrangement, housing, and seals, as well as recent developments in bearings for high-speed aircraft engines. The author explores unique solutions to challenging design problems and presents rare case studies, such as hydrodynamic and rolling-element bearings in series and adjustable hydrostatic pads for large bearings. He focuses on the design considerations and calculations specific to hydrodynamic journal bearings, hydrostatic bearings, and rolling element bearings.

The numerical analysis of hydrodynamic lubrication is supported by a number of computer programs, written in Matlab, which enable the readers to quantitatively analyze lubrication problems. A careful study of the book will not only enable the readers to understand what tribology is, but also to comprehend how it can be applied to solve problems of mechanical failure, reduce maintenance costs and lower the energy consumption."--BOOK JACKET.
This volume contains research papers that were presented at the 3rd International Conference on Engineering Tribology and Applied Technology 2017 (ICETAT2017, October 6-7, 2017, Kun Shan University, Tainan, Taiwan) and covers topics relating to research and engineering practice in tribology and applied technologies in the machinery designing.
Tribology is related to friction, wear and lubrication of machine elements. Tribology not only deals with the design of fluid containment systems like seals and gasket but also with the lubrication of surfaces in relative motion. This book comprehensively discusses the theories and applications of hydrodynamic thrust bearing, gas (air) lubricated bearing and elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication. It elucidates the concepts related to friction, including coefficient of friction, friction instability and stick-slip motion. It clarifies the misconception that harder and cleaner surfaces produce better results in wear. Recent developments, including online condition monitoring (an integration of moisture sensor, wear debris and oil quality sensors) and multigrid technique, are discussed in detail. The book also offers design problems and their real-life applications for cams, followers, gears and bearings. MATLAB programs, frequently asked questions and multiple choice questions are interspersed throughout for easy understanding of the topics.

Tribology is the scientific study of the interaction between sliding surfaces. This text provides explanations of the phenomena of friction, wear and lubrication, with an emphasis on the behaviour of materials.
This title is designed to provide a clear and comprehensive overview of tribology. The book introduces the notion of a surface in tribology where a solid surface is described from topographical, structural, mechanical, and energetic perspectives. It also describes the principal techniques used to characterize and analyze surfaces. The title then discusses what may be called the fundamentals of tribology by introducing and describing the concepts of adhesion, friction, wear, and lubrication. The book focuses on the materials used in tribology, introducing the major classes of materials used, either in their bulk states or as coatings, including both protective layers and other coatings used for decorative purposes. Of especial importance to the tribology community are sections that provide the latest information on Nanotribology, Wear, Lubrication, and Wear-Corrosion: Tribocorrosion and Erosion-Corrosion.
