  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The Third Body Conceptby C.M. Taylor; T.H.C. Childs; Y. Berthier; L. Flamand; G. Dalmaz; D. Dowson; A A Lubrecht; J.M. Georges

    Elsevier Science 1996; US$ 213.00

    The central theme of this book, The Third Body Concept: Interpretation of Tribological Phenomena, was chosen to honour the work of Professor Maurice Godet. The aim of this and previous conferences in the series is to select a topic of current interest to tribologists in order to further advance knowledge in selected fields. Presented by leading scientists... more...

  • Forsthoffer's Rotating Equipment Handbooksby William E. Forsthoffer

    Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 190.00

    Over recent years there have been substantial changes in those industries which are concerned with the design, purchase and use of special purpose (ie critical, high-revenue) rotating equipment. Key personnel have been the victims of early retirement or have moved to other industries: contractors and end-users have reduced their technical staff and... more...

  • Cracked Rotorsby Nicolo Bachschmid; P. Pennacchi; E. Tanzi

    Springer 2010; US$ 159.00

    Cracks can develop in rotating shafts and can propagate to relevant depths without affecting consistently the normal operating conditions of the shaft. In order to avoid catastrophic failures, accurate vibration analyses have to be performed for crack detection. The identification of the crack location and depth is possible by means of a model based... more...
