Friction, Wear, and Erosion Atlas (Paperback)Kenneth G. Budinski (author)
- We can order this
Friction, wear, and erosion are major issues in mechanical engineering and materials science, resulting in major costs to businesses operating in the automotive, biomedical, petroleum/oil/gas, and structural engineering industries. The good news is, by understanding what friction, wear, or erosion mode predominates in a mechanism or device, you can take action to prevent its costly failure.
Seeing Is Believing
Containing nearly 300 photos of component failures, macro- and micrographs of surface damage, and schematics on material removal mechanisms collected over 50 years of tribology consulting and research, Friction, Wear, and Erosion Atlas is a must-have quick reference for tribology professionals and laymen alike. Complete with detailed explanations of every friction, wear, and erosion process, the atlas' catalog of images is supported by a wealth of practical guidance on:Diagnosing the specific causes of part failureIdentifying popular modes of wear, including rolling and impact, with a special emphasis on adhesion and abrasionUnderstanding manifestations of friction, such as force traces from a laboratory test rig for a variety of test couplesRecognizing liquid droplet, solid particle, slurry, equal impingement, and cavitation modes of erosionDeveloping solutions to process-limiting problems
Featuring a glossary of tribology terms and definitions, as well as hundreds of visual representations, Friction, Wear, and Erosion Atlas is both user friendly and useful. It not only raises awareness of the importance of tribology, but provides guidance for how designers can proactively mitigate tribology concerns.
