Mechanical Wear Prediction and Prevention, Second Edition,by Raymond G. Bayer
Synopses & Reviews
Written by a tribological expert with more than thirty years of experience in the field, this Second Edition compiles an extensive range of graphs, tables, micrographs, and drawings to illustrate wear, friction, and lubrication behavior in modern engineering applications. This volume promotes a clear understanding of wear testing methodologies for avoidance and resolution of deterioration and weakening in specific engineering designs. The comprehensive new edition describes more than 20 different phenomenological wear tests and over 10 operational wear tests and introduces a methodology devised by the author for selecting, developing, and conducting wear tests for specific applications.
Book News Annotation:
Updating his 1994 original edition, Bayer (a Fellow of the American Society for Testing and Materials) incorporates new tribological research into this new work explaining thermal and oxidative wear mechanisms, behavior, and phenomena; discussing wear testing methodology; and detailing 20 phenomenological and 11 operational wear tests. New appendixes include tables on threshold stress for galling and sliding wear relationships for different contact situations. Also included is a glossary of wear mechanisms, related terms, and phenomena.
