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
Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical/materials engineering, involved in the design of gears, bearings, or wear-resistant components. Professional engineers involved with fluid mechanics, lubrication, biomedical technology and other related areas.
