About the Authors
  • An ideal textbook for a first tribology course, this book provides an interdisciplinary understanding of the field. It includes materials constraints, real design problems and solutions (such as those for journal and rolling element bearing), cams and followers and heavily loaded gear teeth. Including physics, materials science, and surface and lubricant chemistry, the volume integrates quantitative material from a wide variety of disciplines with traditional engineering approaches.

    • Recognizes the interdisciplinary nature of tribology
    • Integrates qualitative and quantitative methodology
    • Reviewers have praised the coverage of elastic and plastic surfaces in contact, the mechanisms of friction, wear and surface distress, and many other topics
