    This collection of fully peer-reviewed papers were presented at the 26 th Leeds-Lyon Tribology Symposium which was held in Leeds, UK, 14-17 September, 1999. The Leeds-Lyon Symposia on Tribology were launched in 1974, and the large number of references to original work published in the Proceedings over many years confirms the quality of the published... more...

  • The Tribology Handbookby Michael J Neale

    Elsevier Science 1995; US$ 300.00

    The renowned reference work is a practical guide to the selection and design of the components of machines and to their lubrication. It has been completely revised for this second edition by leading experts in the area. more...

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

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 210.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • Lubrication at the Frontierby M. Priest; P. Ehret; L. Flamand; G. Dalmaz; T.H.C. Childs; D. Dowson; Y. Berthier; C.M. Taylor; A A Lubrecht; J.M. Georges

    Elsevier Science 1999; US$ 450.00

    The 25th Leeds-Lyon Symposium on Tribology was held at the Institut des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon, from 8-11th September, 1998. Its central theme was, "Lubrication at the frontier: the role of the interface and surface layers in the thin film and boundary regime". This topic was chosen because it represents an important evolution of the research... 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...

  • Analyzing Friction in the Design of Rubber Products and Their Paired Surfacesby Robert Horigan Smith

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 159.95

    Taking a mechanistic approach that emphasizes the physical behavior of rubber as it slides, Analyzing Friction in the Design of Rubber Products and Their Paired Surfaces integrates the engineering and scientific evidence demonstrating that the laws of metallic friction do not apply to rubber. The book also presents a newly developed, scientifically... 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
