  • Lubricant Additivesby Leslie R. Rudnick

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 279.95

    This text details the design of cost-effective, environmentally friendly lubricant additive technologies and components for the automotive, industrial, manufacturing, food, and aerospace industries. Presenting methods to improve the performance and stability of lubricants, protect metal surfaces against wear, and to control deposits and contaminants... more...

  • Experimental Methods in Tribologyby Gwidon Stachowiak; Andrew W Batchelor

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 195.00

    This is an indespensible guide to both researchers in academia and industry who wish to perform tribological experiments more effectively. With an extensive range of illustrations which communicate the basic concepts in experimental methods tribology more effectively than text alone. An extensive citation list is also provided at the end of each... more...

  • Mechanical Designby K. Maekawa; T. Obikawa; Y. Yamane; T. H. C. Childs

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 61.95

    This book introduces the subject of total design, and introduces the design and selection of various common mechanical engineering components and machine elements. These provide "building blocks", with which the engineer can practice his or her art. The approach adopted for defining design follows that developed by the SEED (Sharing Experience in... more...

  • Superlubricityby Ali Erdemir; Jean-Michel Martin

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 225.00

    Superlubricity is defined as a sliding regime in which friction or resistance to sliding vanishes. It has been shown that energy can be conserved by further reducing/removing friction in moving mechanical systems and this book includes contributions from world-renowned scientists who address some of the most fundamental research issues in overcoming... more...

  • Molybdenum Disulphide Lubricationby A. R. Lansdown

    Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 235.00

    In the 1970s and the early 1980s there was an enormous volume of research and development into the subject of molybdenum disulphide lubrication, much of which was supported by national governments for the benefit of defence, aviation or space activities. There were already some well-established practical guidelines for deciding when and how to use... more...

  • An Intelligent System for Engine Tribological Designby Xiangju Zhang; Chaglin Gui

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 240.00

    The internal combustion is widely used as a power source in engineering. As the demands placed upon engines have increased, tribology has come to play an increasingly important role in their development. This book is a creative combination of intelligent design technology and the tribological design of engines: engine tribology, information science,... more...

  • Multi-Level Methods in Lubricationby C. H. Venner; A A Lubrecht

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 215.00

    Efficient numerical solution of realistic and, therefore, complex equation systems occupies many researchers in many disciplines. For various reasons, but mainly in order to approximate reality, a very large number of unknowns are needed. Using classical techniques, the solution of such a system of equations would take too long, and so sometimes... more...

  • Hydrodynamic Lubricationby J. Frene; D. Nicolas; B. Degueurce; D. Berthe; M. Godet

    Elsevier Science 1997; US$ 275.00

    Hydrodynamic Lubrication is the culmination of over 20 years close, collaborative work by the five authors and discusses the practical use of the formalization of low pressure lubrication. The work concentrates on the developments to journal and thrust bearings and includes subjects such as: • the dynamic behaviour of plain and tilting-pads • the... more...

  • Tribology for Energy Conservationby L. Flamand; G. Dalmaz; D. Dowson; T. H. C. Childs; Y. Berthier; J. M. Georges; A A Lubrecht; C. M. Taylor

    Elsevier Science 1998; US$ 270.00

    The 24th Leeds-Lyon Symposium was held in London from 4th-6th September 1997, where it was hosted by the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine. The meeting addressed the topic of "Tribology for Energy Conservation" and attracted a wide range of stimulating papers and speakers. Some 150 delegates from nineteen countries attended and about... more...

  • IUTAM Symposium on Elastohydrodynamics and Micro-elastohydrodynamicsby R.W. Snidle; H.P. Evans

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 164.60

    This volume contains the proceedings of the IUTAM Symposium on Ela- ohydrodynamics and Microelastohydrodynamics held in Cardiff from 1st to 3rd September 2004. The symposium focused on theoretical, experimental and computational issues in elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) both in relation to smooth surfaces and in situations where the ?lm is of... more...
