Characterization of Tribological Materials
Understanding the comTPsition and structure of a surface is essential in understanding its frictional (Tribological) properties. This volume in the Materials Characterization series will focus on surface characterization, including roughness, hardness, coating thickness and bond strength. Advanced characterization methods are also covered for applications in magnetic recording media, rolling contact bearings and other high-tech systems.
