Written by a tribological expert with more than thirty years of experience in the field, Mechanical Wear Fundamentals and Testing, Second Edition compiles an extensive range of graphs, tables, micrographs, and drawings to illustrate wear, friction, and lubrication behavior in modern engineering applications. The author promotes a clear understanding of wear testing methodologies for avoidance and resolution of deterioration and weakening in specific engineering designs.
Comprehensively describes more than 20 different phenomenological wear tests and over 10 operational wear tests
