  • Surface Diagnostics in Tribologyby K. Miyoshi; Yip-Wah Ching; Y.W. Chung

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1993; US$ 255.00

    This book provides final year undergraduate students, graduate students, research scientists and engineers with an up-to-date overview of the power of using surface analytical techniques for probing complex solid surfaces and lubricants as well as for understanding their interactions in tribological systems. The first three introductory chapters illustrate... more...

  • Elastohydrodynamic Lubrication for Line and Point Contactsby Ilya I. Kudish

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 206.95

    Elastohydrodynamic Lubrication for Line and Point Contacts: Asymptotic and Numerical Approaches describes a coherent asymptotic approach to the analysis of lubrication problems for heavily loaded line and point contacts. This approach leads to unified asymptotic equations for line and point contacts as well as stable numerical algorithms for the... more...

  • Nano-tribology and Materials in MEMSby Sujeet K. Sinha; N. Satyanarayana; Seh Chun Lim

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 179.00

    This book brings together recent developments in the areas of MEMS tribology, novel lubricants and coatings for nanotechnological applications, biomimetics in tribology and fundamentals of micro/nano-tribology. more...

  • Computational Techniques of Rotor Dynamics with the Finite Element Methodby Arne Vollan; Louis Komzsik

    CRC Press 2012; US$ 171.95

    For more than a century, we have had a firm grasp on rotor dynamics involving rigid bodies with regular shapes, such as cylinders and shafts. However, to achieve an equally solid understanding of the rotational behavior of flexible bodies?especially those with irregular shapes, such as propeller and turbine blades?we require more modern tools and... more...

  • Dynamics with Frictionby Ardéshir Guran; Friedrich Pfeiffer; Karl Popp

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 182.00

    The dynamics of dissipative mechanical and structural systems is being investigated at various institutions and laboratories worldwide with ever-increasing sophistication of modeling, analysis and experiments.This book offers a collection of contributions from these research centers that represent the state-of-the-art in the study of friction oscillators.... more...

  • Solid Lubricants and Surfacesby E. R. Braithwaite

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Solid Lubricants and Surfaces deals with the theory and use of solid lubricants, particularly in colloidal form. Portions of this book are devoted to graphite and molybdenum disulfides, which are widely used solid lubricants in colloidal form. An extensive literature on the laboratory examination of hundreds of solids as potential lubricants is also... more...

  • Electromagnetic Clutches and Couplingsby T. M. Vorob'Yeva; O. M. Blunn; D. W. Fry; W. Higinbotham
