By Gwidon Stachowiak, Andrew W Batchelor

Engineering Tribology, 4th version is a longtime introductory reference concentrating on the main strategies and engineering implications of tribology. Taking an interdisciplinary view, the booklet brings jointly the suitable wisdom from diversified fields had to in achieving powerful research and keep an eye on of friction and wear.

Updated to hide contemporary advances in tribology, this re-creation contains new sections on ionic and mesogenic lubricants, floor texturing, and multiscale characterization of 3D surfaces and coatings. present traits in nanotribology are mentioned, equivalent to these in relation to lubricants, coatings and composites, and geotribology is introduced.

Suitable as an introductory textual content, a refresher or an on-the-job reference, Engineering Tribology, 4th Edition is meant for ultimate yr undergraduate and postgraduate scholars in mechanical engineering in addition to specialist engineers. it's also proper to these operating in fabrics engineering, utilized chemistry, physics and bioengineering.

  • Offers a entire evaluate of the mechanisms of wear and tear, lubrication and friction in an obtainable demeanour designed to assist beginner engineers, non-specialists and students
  • Provides a reader-friendly method of the topic utilizing illustrations to collapse the quite often advanced difficulties linked to tribology
  • Includes end-of-chapter difficulties to check understanding

For example, when asphalt or pitch is hit with a hammer it will shatter, on the other hand when placed on an incline it will slowly flow. 9 Evaluation of viscosity index [23]. A number of attempts have been made to develop a formula describing the relationship between pressure and viscosity of lubricants. Some have been quite satisfactory, especially at low pressures, while others have been quite complex and not easily applicable in practice. The best known equation to calculate the viscosity of a lubricant at moderate pressures (close to atmospheric) is the Barus equation [4,5].
