Book Description

Tribology is a multidisciplinary science that encompasses mechanical engineering, materials science, surface engineering, lubricants, and additives chemistry with tremendous applications. Progress in Lubrication and Nano- and Biotribology discusses the latest in lubrication engineering and nano- and biotribology.

  • Discusses green tribology and snakeskin tribology
  • Explains biogreases and nanolubricant additives
  • Explores applications in aerospace, additive manufactured parts, and severe environments

Written for researchers and advanced students, this book encompasses a wide-ranging view of the latest in nano-and biotribology for a variety of cross-disciplinary applications.
