CRC Press, Apr 6, 2006 - Technology & Engineering - 1224 pages
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.
