Solid Lubrication Fundamentals and Applications description of the adhesion, friction, abrasion, and wear behavior of solid film lubricants and related tribological materials, including diamond and diamond-like solid films. The book details the properties of solid surfaces, clean surfaces, and contaminated surfaces as well as discussing the structu

Table of Contents

Introduction and background; characterization of solid surfaces; properties of clean surfaces - adhesion, friction and wear; properties of contaminated surfaces - adhesion, friction and wear; abrasion - plowing and cutting; friction and wear properties of selected solid lubricating films - case studies; aerospace mechanisms and tribology technology -case studies; structures and mechanical properties of natural and synthetic diamonds; chemical-vapour-deposited diamond film; surface design and engineering toward wear-resistant, self-lubricating diamond films and coatings.
