Tribology is an interdisciplinary subject which draws on the skills of a wide variety of specialists, including mechanical engineers, surface and lubricant chemists, material scientists, and physicists.
Design problems in areas as diverse as plain journal and rolling element bearings, heavily loaded gear teeth, and cams and followers can be solved using tribological solutions: this book provides a thorough understanding of the engineering aspects of the subject to enable realistic design solutions to be found. Topics covered include qualitative and quantitative descriptions of engineering surfaces, elastic and plastic stress, friction, surface distress and wear, pressurised fluid films,
elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication, the mechanisms of boundary lubrication, dry and marginally lubricated bearings, and rolling contacts and bearings. It is aimed at advanced student level, and will also be of value to senior designers and research workers moving into the area.
