Description

Bearings: A Tribology Handbook is a practical guide on bearings, based on materials published in the first edition of the Tribology Handbook.
The handbook has been updated matching international requirements. The book is divided in four main parts. The first part is a description of different bearing types and forms pertaining to continuous and oscillatory movements. A selection of journal and thrust bearings as to their different load capacity, performance, and special environmental conditions is explained. The second part deals with the physical properties and load capacity of plain bearings. Other kinds of bearing, such as the dry rubbing bearings; porous metal bearings; grease, wick, and drip fed journal bearings; ring and disc fed journal bearings; steady load pressure fed journal bearings; high-speed bearings; and crankshaft bearings, are considered regarding their performance, maintenance, and suitability to specific conditions. The third part focuses on one type of bearing: the rolling bearing. The selection, composition, shaft and housing design, and fitting and mounting for this type is discussed. The last part explains special bearing types such as slide bearings, instrument jewels (which are a combination of a steel pivot and a synthetic sapphire jewel), and electromagnetic bearings that are essentially powerful electromagnets. The need for surface treatments and coatings is then explained for optimum usage.
The handbook is useful for design engineers, mechanical engineers, and material researchers. Mechanical, aeronautical, and automotive students; car mechanics; and those interested in machine and car maintenance will find this handbook a handy reference.
