Description

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

Reviews

Praise for the Second Edition

"…anyone interested in understanding wear, especially those responsible for controlling and managing wear in critical systems, will find this book most valuable. It is well written with clear explanations. The book does an outstanding job of keeping things in perspective, while informing the reader in the latest developments in the field."

-Dr. Robert M. Gresham, Contributing Editor, Tribology & Lubrication Technology, January 2006

Praise for the First Edition

"…A well presented and highly commendable book for all practicing engineers, based on a wealth of experience on the part of the author."

-Strain

"…Well illustrated by many clear drawings, photographs, micrographs and tables. It is a useful book…for the design engineer as for the professor in charge of a course on tribology."

-European Journal of Mechanical Engineering

"Throughout the book, the principles being explained are illustrated with exceptionally clear line drawings, appropriate mathematical formulations and with a large number of excellent scanning electron micrographs. …The book provides an excellent reference for materials engineers and designers who may be confronted with wear problems in design. It would also serve as a graduate or senior-level text in a materials science course on wear."

-JOM On-line, Jan. 2006
