Book Description

Tribology is a multidisciplinary science that encompasses mechanical engineering, materials science, surface engineering, lubricants, and additives chemistry with tremendous applications. The development of high performance in different material pairs such as metal-metal, ceramic-ceramic, ceramic-polymer and metal-polymer composites is essential to enhancing tribology behaviour. Tribology, Lubrication, and Surface Engineering: Research and Applications, Two-Volume Set provides a systematic and comprehensive account of recent developments and applications in this area.

  • Reviews emerging technologies, industrial tribology, and characterization of surface engineering and coatings
  • Discusses how tribology works for machine elements and manufacturing processes
  • Describes the mechanism that drives micro- and nanotribology
  • Covers tribochemistry, tribocorrosion, green tribology, and biotribology
  • Highlights applications and future perspectives

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