Providing an overview of tribological phenomena, this comprehensive reference details a practical methodology to determine the design parameters and materials to obtain desired wear performances - stressing the idea of mechanical wear as a system property not merely a material property, throughout.
Emphasizing general concepts rather than the specifics associated with individual materials and wear conditions, Mechanical Wear Prediction and Prevention examines engineering wear and wear rate relationships; describes the selection and engineering models; integrates wear behavior with other elements of design such as cost, function, and manufacturability; summaries and critiques commonly used and standardized wear tests; offers numerous micrographs of wear scar morphology for use in failure analysis; discusses case studies taken from the author's experiences well as from the professional literature to illustrate techniques for solving wear design problems; and much more.
Containing over 525 up - to - date references and more than 950 insightful tables, drawings, equations, photographs, and micrographs, Mechanical Wear Prediction and Prevention is a vital resource for mechanical, manufacturing, materials, plastics, lubrication, development, test, and reliability engineers; electrical contact designers; metallurgists; tribologists; and upper - level undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in these disciplines.
