  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Elastohydrodynamics '96by C. Taylor; L. Flamand; G. Dalmaz; D. Dowson; T.H.C. Childs; Y. Berthier; J.M. Georges; A A Lubrecht

    Elsevier Science 1997; US$ 225.00

    This volume represents the latest issue of a collection of Proceedings each dealing with a different topic in Tribology. This volume contains the Proceedings from the 23rd Leeds-Lyon Symposium which addressed the topic of Elastohydrodynamics and was attended by many international experts in the field. The Keynote Address was presented by Professor... more...

  • Engineering Tribologyby G.W. Stachowiak; A.W. Batchelor

    Elsevier Science 1993; US$ 72.95

    The interdisciplinary nature of tribology encompasses knowledge drawn from disciplines such as mechanical engineering, materials science, chemistry and physics. The interaction between these different fields of knowledge to achieve the final result, the control of friction and wear, is reviewed in this volume. This interdisciplinary approach has proven... 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...
