Industrial Tribology: Tribosystems, Friction, Wear and Surface Engineering, Lubrication
John Wiley & Sons, Jan 19, 2011 - Technology & Engineering - 648 pages
Integrating very interesting results from the most important R & D project ever made in Germany, this book offers a basic understanding of tribological systems and the latest developments in reduction of wear and energy consumption by tribological measures.
This ready reference and handbook provides an analysis of the most important tribosystems using modern test equipment in laboratories and test fields, the latest results in material selection and wear protection by special coatings and surface engineering, as well as with lubrication and lubricants.
This result is a quick introduction for mechanical engineers and laboratory technicians who have to monitor and evaluate lubricants, as well as for plant maintenance personnel, engineers and chemists in the automotive and transportation industries and in all fields of mechanical manufacturing industries, researchers in the field of mechanical engineering, chemistry and material sciences.
