  • Nano-tribology and Materials in MEMSby Sujeet K. Sinha; N. Satyanarayana; Seh Chun Lim

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 119.75

    This book brings together recent developments in the areas of MEMS tribology, novel lubricants and coatings for nanotechnological applications, biomimetics in tribology and fundamentals of micro/nano-tribology. more...

  • Computational Techniques of Rotor Dynamics with the Finite Element Methodby Arne Vollan; Louis Komzsik

    CRC Press 2012; US$ 171.95

    For more than a century, we have had a firm grasp on rotor dynamics involving rigid bodies with regular shapes, such as cylinders and shafts. However, to achieve an equally solid understanding of the rotational behavior of flexible bodies?especially those with irregular shapes, such as propeller and turbine blades?we require more modern tools and... more...

  • Biolubricantsby Jan C.J. Bart; Emanuele Gucciardi; Stefano Cavallaro

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 345.00

    Lubricants are essential in engineering, however more sustainable formulations are needed to avoid adverse effects on the ecosystem. Bio-based lubricant formulations present a promising solution. Biolubricants: Science and technology is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary and timely review of this important subject. Initial chapters address the principles... more...

  • Dynamics with Frictionby Ardéshir Guran; Friedrich Pfeiffer; Karl Popp

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2001; US$ 112.00

    The dynamics of dissipative mechanical and structural systems is being investigated at various institutions and laboratories worldwide with ever-increasing sophistication of modeling, analysis and experiments.This book offers a collection of contributions from these research centers that represent the state-of-the-art in the study of friction oscillators.... more...

  • Solid Lubricants and Surfacesby E. R. Braithwaite

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Solid Lubricants and Surfaces deals with the theory and use of solid lubricants, particularly in colloidal form. Portions of this book are devoted to graphite and molybdenum disulfides, which are widely used solid lubricants in colloidal form. An extensive literature on the laboratory examination of hundreds of solids as potential lubricants is also... more...

  • Electromagnetic Clutches and Couplingsby T. M. Vorob'Yeva; O. M. Blunn; D. W. Fry; W. Higinbotham

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Electromagnetic Clutches and Couplings contains a detailed description of U.S.S.R. electromagnetic friction clutches, magnetic couplings, and magnetic particle couplings. This book is divided into four chapters. The first chapter discusses the design and construction of magnetic (solenoid-operated) couplings, which are very quick-acting devices and... more...

  • Hydrostatic and Hybrid Bearing Designby W B Rowe

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Hydrostatic and Hybrid Bearing Design is a 15-chapter book that focuses on the bearing design and testing. This book first describes the application of hydrostatic bearings, as well as the device pressure, flow, force, power, and temperature. Subsequent chapters discuss the load and flow rate of thrust pads; circuit design, flow control, load, and... more...

  • Developments in Numerical and Experimental Methods Applied to Tribologyby D. Dowson; C. M. Taylor; M. Godet

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    Developments in Numerical and Experimental Methods Applied to Tribology contains the proceedings of the 10th Leeds-Lyon Symposium on Tribology held at the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées in Lyon, France, on September 6-9, 1983. The papers explore developments in numerical and experimental methods used in tribology and cover topics ranging... more...

  • Elasto-Hydrodynamic Lubricationby D. Dowson; G. R. Higginson; D. W. Hopkins

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    Elasto-Hydrodynamic Lubrication deals with the mechanism of elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication, that is, the lubrication regime in operation over the small areas where machine components are in nominal point or line contact. The lubrication of rigid contacts is discussed, along with the effects of high pressure on the lubricant and bounding solids. The... more...
