Recent research has led to a deeper understanding of the nature and consequences of interactions between materials on an atomic scale. The results have resonated throughout the field of tribology. For example, new applications require detailed understanding of the tribological process on macro- and microscales and new knowledge guides the rational design of material for these applications. A two volume set, the Modern Tribology Handbook reports on the current state-of-the-field as it reflects these developments, including all industrial applications. In the Modern Tribology Handbook you will get: A thorough review of the basic concepts of contact, friction, wear, and lubrication Comprehensive coverage of experimental studies The fascinating subject of molecular dynamics simulations An exploration of both conventional and new tribological materials Knowledge of the advantages and limitations of ceramics, diamond-like carbon and related films, and a wide range of coating composites A section devoted to industrial components and systems Conventional tribology has become well established in the past fifty years but few handbooks that exist are dated. The rapid evolution of micro- and nanotribology will cause it to take center stage for the next decade, but much of the new information has not made it into the hands that need to use it. Extensively illustrated and well-researched, the Modern Tribology Handbook gives you comprehensive information on conventional topics and, more importantly, emphasizes all industrial applications, including the fundamentals of the emerging field of micro-and nanotribology.

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.

Since the publication of the best-selling first edition, the growing price and environmental cost of energy have increased the significance of tribology. Handbook of Lubrication and Tribology, Volume II: Theory and Design, Second Edition demonstrates how the principles of tribology can address cost savings, energy conservation, and environmental protection. This second edition provides a thorough treatment of established knowledge and practices, along with detailed references for further study. Written by the foremost experts in the field, the book is divided into four sections. The first reviews the basic principles of tribology, wear mechanisms, and modes of lubrication. The second section covers the full range of lubricants/coolants, including mineral oil, synthetic fluids, and water-based fluids. In the third section, the contributors describe many wear- and friction-reducing materials and treatments, which are currently the fastest growing areas of tribology, with announcements of new coatings, better performance, and new vendors being made every month. The final section presents components, equipment, and designs commonly found in tribological systems. It also examines specific industrial areas and their processes. Sponsored by the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers, this handbook incorporates up-to-date, peer-reviewed information for tackling tribological problems and improving lubricants and tribological systems. The book shows how the proper use of generally accepted tribological practices can save money, conserve energy, and protect the environment.

When it was first published some two decades ago, the original Handbook of Lubrication and Tribology stood on technology's cutting-edge as the first comprehensive reference to assist the emerging science of tribology lubrication. Later, followed by Volume II, Theory and Design and Volume III, Monitoring, Materials, Synthetic Lubricants, and Applications, it has continued to serve as the cornerstone of every tribology and lubrication science library, providing engineers, researchers, and technicians with the information they need to do their work and pioneer the advancements that have dramatically reshaped this field. Now due to those advances, the time has come to retool tribology's master text. In addition to offering tribologists the facts, figures, and equations they need everyday, Volume I Application and Maintenance, Second Edition positions itself at the forefront of the field to address the latest technology related to application and maintenance procedures, as well as changes in our understanding of how lubrication principles impact implementation. Completely reorganized to aid the reader in identifying chapters and topics of interest, every one of the chapters retained from the first edition has either been fully updated and revised, or completely rewritten by a peer-recognized team of experts who are currently active in a wide variety of industry segments. With the addition of several new subject areas, it now boasts a total of 37 chapters.

The result of Kenneth C Ludema's 35 years of teaching and research, Friction, Wear, Lubrication: A Textbook in Tribology presents a broad view of the many aspects of tribology. All major aspects of this discipline are included, from mechanical to materials to chemical to mechanics. Ludema's key research areas - marginally lubricated wear and friction - will be of special interest to readers who would like to find reliable and useful data on friction and wear rates. Written primarily as a text/reference, this informative volume describes how to solve design problems in friction and wear. By applying close and informed observation of presently operating tribological systems, along with careful design of simulative tests, readers can develop their own conclusions of tribological results. This book is intended to bring everyone solving problems in friction and wear to the same understanding of what is (and what is not) involved in this exciting field. Seniors and graduate students, as well as practicing engineers employed in a wide range of industries will find this book to be an essential and practical resource.
