  • Tribology of Interface Layers

    1st Edition

    By Hooshang Heshmat

    To this point, the field of lubrication has been conceptualized using several noncontiguous modes of operation — boundary, fluid-film, and dry and solid lubrication. Engineers and analysts have long had to deal with old evidence that many tribological devices, such as flat surface and centrally…

  • Surfactants in Tribology, Volume 1

    1st Edition

    Edited by Girma Biresaw, K.L. Mittal

    Surfactants play a variety of critical roles in tribology. In addition to controlling friction and wear, they also allow for control of a wide range of properties of lubricants, such as emulsification/demulsification, bioresistance, oxidation resistance, and rust/corrosion prevention. This book…
