  • Thin Films in Tribologyby G. Dalmaz; T.H.C. Childs; D. Dowson; M. Godet; C.M. Taylor

    Elsevier Science 1993; US$ 72.95

    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...

  • Tribological Design of Machine Elementsby D. Berthe; D. Dowson; M. Godet; C.M. Taylor

    Elsevier Science 1989; US$ 72.95

    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...

  • Tribology of Plastic Materialsby Y. Yamaguchi

    Elsevier Science 1990; US$ 72.95

    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...

  • Vehicle Tribologyby M. Godet; D. Dowson; C.M. Taylor

    Elsevier Science 1991; US$ 72.95

    Vehicle Tribology was chosen as the topic for the 17th Leeds-Lyon Symposium, as it was decided to be a timely opportunity to bring together experts of many disciplines connected with problems of emissions, particulates and energy efficiency associated with the automobile engine. The volume contains 55 papers divided into eighteen sessions. more...

  • Lubricants and Lubricationby G. Dalmaz; T.H.C. Childs; D. Dowson; C.M. Taylor

    Elsevier Science 1995; US$ 72.95

    These proceedings review progress in the development of lubricants and in the understanding of the phenomena of lubrication. The contents include papers on the impact of automotive technology and environmental factors upon lubricant requirements, elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication, boundary lubrication, machine elements, bio-tribology, metal forming,... more...

  • Materials for Tribologyby William Glaeser

    Elsevier Science 1992; US$ 72.95

    This handbook provides an extensive reference source on the materials used in tribological applications. Materials used in tribological applications are, for the most part, common materials used for general engineering applications. Many conventional engineering materials have been adapted to tribological uses and examples of these are given throughout... more...

  • Mechanics and Chemistry in Lubricationby A. Dorinson; K.C. Ludema

    Elsevier Science 1985; US$ 72.95

    Although it is widely recognized that friction, wear and lubrication are linked together in a single interdisciplinary complex of scientific learning and technological practice, fragmented and specialized approaches still predominate. In this book, the authors examine lubrication from an interdisciplinary viewpoint. They demonstrate that once the... more...

  • Mechanics of Coatingsby D. Dowson; C.M. Taylor; M. Godet

    Elsevier Science 1990; US$ 72.95

    Mechanics of Coatings was chosen as the topic for the 16th Leeds-Lyon Symposium, as it was decided to be a timely opportunity to bring together experts of many disciplines connected with coatings to find ways of extending the industrial use of these coatings particularly in the field of tribology. The volume contains 51 papers divided into 20 sessions.... more...

  • Coatings Tribologyby K. Holmberg; A. Matthews

    Elsevier Science 1994; US$ 72.95

    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...

  • Dissipative Processes in Tribologyby D. Dowson; G. Dalmaz; T.H.C. Childs; C.M. Taylor; M. Godet

    Elsevier Science 1994; US$ 72.95

    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...
