More than a decade since the well-received and widely acclaimed... more...

  • Modern Tribology Handbook, Two Volume Setby Bharat Bhushan

    CRC Press 2000; US$ 275.00

    Recent research has led to a deeper understanding of the nature and consequences of interactions between materials on an atomic scale. The results have resonated throughout the field of tribology. For example, new applications require detailed understanding of the tribological process on macro- and microscales and new knowledge guides the rational... more...

  • Tribology In Chemical-Mechanical Planarizationby Hong Liang; David Craven

    CRC Press 2005; US$ 220.00

    The role that friction and contact play in the processes of wear and planarization on material surfaces is central to the understanding of Chemical-Mechanical planarization (CMP) technology, particularly when applied to nanosurfaces. Tribology in Chemical-Mechanical Planarization presents a detailed account of the CMP process in a language that is... more...

  • Handbook of Lubrication and Tribologyby George E. Totten

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 375.00
