Tribology covers the fundamentals of tribology and the tribological response of all types of materials, including metals, ceramics, and polymers. The book provides a solid scientific foundation without relying on extensive mathematics, an approach that will allow readers to formulate appropriate solutions when faced with practical problems. Topics considered include fundamentals of surface topography and contact, friction, lubrication, and wear. The book also presents up-to-date discussions on the treatment of wear in the design process, tribological applications of surface engineering, and materials for sliding and rolling bearings. Tribology will be valuable to engineers in the field of tribology, mechanical engineers, physicists, chemists, materials scientists, and students.
