Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Friction and Wear of Materials Second Edition Written by one of the world’s foremost authorities on friction, this classic book offers a lucid presentation of the theory of mechanical surface interactions as it applies to friction, wear, adhesion, and boundary lubrication. To aid engineers in design decisions, Friction and Wear of Materials evaluates the properties of materials which, under specified conditions, cause one material to function better as a bearing material than another. Featured also are thorough treatments of lubricants and the sizes and shapes of wear particles. This updated Second Edition includes new material on erosive wear, impact wear, and friction. Professor Rabinowicz’s book will be especially welcomed by mechanical and design engineers, surface scientists, tribologists and others who design, produce and operate products, machines and equipment which involve friction and its effects.

Book News Annotation:

Presents the theory of mechanical surface interactions as it applies to friction, wear, adhesion, and boundary lubrication, for mechanical and design engineers, surface scientists, and tribologists. Evaluates properties of materials, and discusses lubricants and the sizes and shapes of wear particles. This second edition incorporates new material on erosive wear, impact wear, and friction, and uses SI units of measurement. Includes sample problems.

Synopsis:

This second edition of a best selling title by a well know authority on the subject. The book presents the theory of mechanical surface interactions to explain the observed laws of friction, wear, adhesion, and boundary lubrication; also covers the properties of materials and the effect of varying conditions on those materials to facilitate the proper choice in design considerations. Updated to include recent and significant research findings of the last twenty years.This second edition of a best selling title by a well know authority on the subject.
