Basic and Clinical Oncology #19: Solid Lubrication Fundamentals and Applications Pure and Applied Mathematics Series/152by Kazuhisa Miyoshi
Synopses & Reviews
Solid Lubrication Fundamentals and Applications description of the adhesion, friction, abrasion, and wear behavior of solid film lubricants and related tribological materials, including diamond and diamond-like solid films. The book details the properties of solid surfaces, clean surfaces, and contaminated surfaces as well as discussing the structures and mechanical properties of natural and synthetic diamonds; chemical-vapor-deposited diamond film; surface design and engineering toward wear-resistant, self-lubricating diamond films and coatings. The author provides selection and design criteria as well as applications for synthetic and natural coatings in the commercial, industrial and aerospace industries..
Book News Annotation:
Discusses the properties of dry solid film lubricants and materials, the surface effects in and characteristics of tribological phenomena, and the mechanisms of friction and solid lubrication. Miyoshi, an engineer at NASA, addresses the properties of both clean and contaminated surfaces, types of abrasion, analytical techniques, and deposition technology. The ultra-high vacuum environment and surface cleaning techniques used highlight the basic material properties that influence tribological characteristics. The closing chapters focus on diamond and diamond-like solid film lubricants.
