This title is designed to provide a clear and comprehensive overview of tribology and will thus serve as a useful reference guide suitable for students, researchers and engineers alike.
The book is divided into three sections.
Section 1 introduces the notion of a surface in tribology where a solid surface is described from topographical, structural, mechanical and energetic perspectives. It also describes the principal techniques used to characterize and analyze surfaces.
Section 2 discusses what may be called tribology proper by introducing and describing the concepts of adhesion, friction, wear and lubrication.
Section 3 focuses on the materials used in tribology, introducing the major classes of materials used, either in their bulk states or as coatings, including both hard-facing protective layers and other coatings used for decorative purposes.
