- Taylor & Francis 2008; US$ 159.95
Putting the science of friction studies in its historical context, this book covers the effects of engine conditioning on lubricant frictional characteristics as well as the role of friction in automotive and truck brakes, including brake testing methods, and the friction of footware and biomaterials. more...
- Springer 2008; US$ 139.99
Offers an introduction to the principles of nanotribology and nanomechanics and applications to magnetic storage systems and MEMS/NEMS. This book covers measurement techniques, their applications, and theoretical modelling of interfaces, each beginning their contributions with macro- and progressing to microconcepts. more...
- Elsevier Science 1994; US$ 213.00
This book discusses dissipative phenomena, in particular the origins of friction at all scales, in mechanics, physics and chemistry, encountered in all fields of tribology, from thick film lubrication to dry friction. more...
- Elsevier Science 1997; US$ 215.00
This volume represents the latest issue of a collection of Proceedings each dealing with a different topic in Tribology. This volume contains the Proceedings from the 23rd Leeds-Lyon Symposium which addressed the topic of Elastohydrodynamics and was attended by many international experts in the field. The Keynote Address was presented by Professor... more...
- Elsevier Science 1993; US$ 213.00
The interdisciplinary nature of tribology encompasses knowledge drawn from disciplines such as mechanical engineering, materials science, chemistry and physics. The interaction between these different fields of knowledge to achieve the final result, the control of friction and wear, is reviewed in this volume. This interdisciplinary approach has proven... more...
- Elsevier Science 1994; US$ 215.00
This book presents a general view on thin surface coatings used for tribological applications and it is based on the current state of understanding. The mechanisms of friction and wear in sliding and rolling contacts of coated surfaces are described. Basic information on coating techniques, tribology and surface mechanisms is given. Based on collected... more...

The tribological properties of relatively moving surfaces are greatly influenced by thin surface films which are of considerable importance in the design of machine components. From Victorian days when working lubricant films were calculated in tens of micrometres, to today when molecular dynamics simulations and even experiments are beginning to look... more...
- Elsevier Science 1989; US$ 200.00
On previous occasions each Symposium has focused attention on a current and significant research topic, usually reflecting the interests of the Leeds or Lyon research groups, however this time the main focus was on the vitally important subject of technology transfer, providing the 154 delegates from 21 countries with the rare opportunity to discuss... more...
- Elsevier Science 1990; US$ 213.00
This book presents a thorough overview on workable theories and reliable experimental data on the use of plastic materials for sliding parts. Divided into four parts. Chapters 1 and 2 deal with current theories of friction and wear, and include discussion of various hypotheses based upon experimental studies. Chapter 3 details experiments designed... more...
