Book Description :

Tribology is the study of friction, wear and lubrication. Recently, the concept of “green tribology” as “the science and technology of the tribological aspects of ecological balance and of environmental and biological impacts” was introduced. The field of green tribology includes tribological technology that mimics living nature (biomimetic surfaces) and thus is expected to be environmentally friendly, the control of friction and wear that is of importance for energy conservation and conversion, environmental aspects of lubrication and surface modification techniques, and tribological aspects of green applications such as wind-power turbines or solar panels. This book is the first comprehensive volume on green tribology. The chapters are prepared by leading experts in their fields and cover such topics as biomimetics, environmentally friendly lubrication, tribology of wind turbines and renewable sources of energy, and ecological impact of new technologies of surface treatment.

Book Description :

In 1975 we and four of our former colleagues wrote the textbook Principles of Tribology. That book was very successful both in the United Kingdom and overseas and it is still being sold today. However, 13 years after the first publication of the book, the publishers suggested that we should consider revising the text, to include the more important developments which had taken place in the meantime. Although we have remained active in tribological research, it was only when we started work on this revision that we realised that the developments which have taken place have been so extensive that they could not be accommodated simply by revision of our existing text. As a result, although we have reused some of our original material, the present book has resulted from a complete reappraisal of our ideas on the necessary content of a modern introductory textbook on tribology. As the title of the book implies, it has been our intention to write a book which will provide a thorough grounding in the principles of our subject for undergraduates and new research workers and will also act as a basic reference book for practising designers. In the areas of friction and wear, although there has been a great deal of high-quality research on the underlying physical and mechanical processes, there are no current, or indeed foreseeable, models which will allow quantitative predictions of friction coefficients or wear rates from basic physical, chemical and mechanical properties.

Book Description :

This book attempts to provide specialists in the field of metal cutting with information on how to make metal cutting tribology useful at various levels (starting with tool design, developing and/or selecting proper tool materials including coating, development and/or selecting proper cutting fluids and ending with cutting process optimization on the shop floor). The major distinguishing feature of this book is that it focuses on the practical ways of modeling and optimization of the cutting process using two simple in- and post-process parameters, namely the cutting temperature and chip compression ratio that can be measured with sufficient accuracy not only in a research lab but also on the shop floor. This book gives practical guidance to a wide variety of readers from machining shop practitioners to scientists in the field of metal cutting. For the first time, an attempt is made to present metal cutting tribology as a science that really works.

Book Description :

This book draws upon the science of tribology to understand, predict and improve abrasive machining processes. Pulling together information on how abrasives work, the authors, who are renowned experts in abrasive technology, demonstrate how tribology can be applied as a tool to improve abrasive machining processes. Each of the main elements of the abrasive machining system are looked at, and the tribological factors that control the efficiency and quality of the processes are described. Since grinding is by far the most commonly employed abrasive machining process, it is dealt with in particular detail. Solutions are posed to many of the most commonly experienced industrial problems, such as poor accuracy, poor surface quality, rapid wheel wear, vibrations, work-piece burn and high process costs. This practical approach makes this book an essential tool for practicing engineers. Uses the science of tribology to improve understanding and of abrasive machining processes in order to increase performance, productivity and surface quality of final products A comprehensive reference on how abrasives work, covering kinematics, heat transfer, thermal stresses, molecular dynamics, fluids and the tribology of lubricants Authoritative and ground-breaking in its first edition, the 2nd edition includes 30% new and updated material, including new topics such as CMP (Chemical Mechanical Polishing) and precision machining for micro-and nano-scale applications
