Characterization of tribological materials
Characterization of Tribological Materials provides the tribologist with a practical guide to the use of surface analytical techniques. Including material on the current understanding of friction and wear mechanisms from the standpoint of the surface state, this book will acquaint scientists and engineers involved with tribological problems with the potentials and limitations of current surface analytical techniques. Detailed information about the individual characterization techniques mentioned can be found in the 'Encyclopaedia of Materials Characterization' the companion volume in the 'Materials Characterization Series: Surfaces, Interfaces, Thin Films'.
