Description

This book demonstrates how to control mechanisms of contact mechanics, heat generation and transfer, friction, noise generation, lubrication, and surface damage due to mechanical and thermal variables. Friction and Lubrication in Mechanical Design reviews various classical and new tribology problems beginning with history and ending with numerical optimization and examples, simplifies access to information for predicting and preventing friction and wear, and provides a useful tool for everyone involved in mechanical design, or in machinery monitoring.
