"Should have broad appeal in many kinds of industry, ranging from automotive to computers-basically any organization concerned with products having moving parts!"



-David A. Rigney, Materials Science and Engineering Department, Ohio State University, Columbus, USA



In-Depth Coverage of Frictional Concepts





Friction affects so many aspects of daily life that most take it for granted. Arguably, mankind's attempt to control friction dates back to the invention of the wheel. Friction Science and Technology: From Concepts to Applications, Second Edition presents a broad, multidisciplinary overview of the constantly moving field of friction, spanning the history of friction studies to the evolution of measurement instruments. It reviews the gamut of friction test methods, ranging from simple inclined plans to sophisticated laboratory tribometers.





The book starts with introductory concepts about friction and progressively delves into the more subtle fundamentals of surface contact, use of various lubricants, and specific applications such as brakes, piston rings, and machine components.





Includes American Society of Testing and Management (ASTM) Standards





This volume covers multiple facets of friction, with numerous interesting and unusual examples of friction-related technologies not found in other tribology books. These include:









Friction in winter sports





Friction of touch and human skin





Friction of footware and biomaterials





Friction drilling of metals





Friction of tires and road surfaces





Describing the tools of the trade for friction research, this edition enables engineers to purchase or build their own devices. It also discusses frictiona
