Overview

  • Offers a comprehensive and accessible overview of the mechanisms of wear, lubrication and friction, with graphic illustrative methods used to break down complex problems.
  • Updated with the latest advances in tribology, including new sections on ionic and mesogenic lubricants, surface texturing, and multiscale characterization of 3D surfaces.
  • Includes details of a new program for calculating abrasive particle angularity, including source code.

Engineering Tribology, 4th Edition is an established introductory reference focusing on the key concepts and engineering implications of tribology. Taking an interdisciplinary view, the book brings together the relevant knowledge from different fields needed to achieve effective analysis and control of friction and wear.

Updated to cover recent advances in tribology, this new edition includes new sections on ionic and mesogenic lubricants, surface texturing, and multiscale characterization of 3D surfaces and coatings. Current trends in nanotribology are discussed, such as those relating to lubricants, coatings and composites, and geotribology is introduced.

Suitable as an introductory text, a refresher or an on-the-job reference, Engineering Tribology, 4th Edition is intended for final year undergraduate and postgraduate students in mechanical engineering as well as professional engineers. It is also relevant to those working in materials engineering, applied chemistry, physics and bioengineering.

The field of tribology encompasses knowledge drawn from the disciplines of mechanical engineering, materials science, chemistry and physics. The control of friction and wear, the aim of the subject, is comprehensively and accessibly addressed in this 2nd edition of Engineering Tribology. This interdisciplinary approach has proven to be a very successful way of analyzing friction and wear problems. In conjunction with this 2nd Edition, MATLAB computer programs will be accessible for practical applications via the Butterworth-Heinemann website.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Tribology is the science of friction, wear, and lubrication of surfaces in relative motion. This tome is intended to provide a more interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach to tribology than the numerous other books on this subject; it may also be considered more of an encyclopedia than a text." Summing Up: Recommended—Choice Reviews Online, June 2014
Booknews
Finding most textbooks on tribology either too specialized or too literal, Stachowiak and Batchelor (both mechanical and materials engineering, U. of Western Australia) offer a graduate or advanced undergraduate textbook on tribology using terminology and concepts familiar to engineering students. They emphasize the interaction between the several fields of knowledge that contribute to the study of friction and wear. The contents of the first edition (no date noted) have been updated and augmented with a number of new topics as suggested by reviewers. The CiP cites Stackowiak's first name as Gwidion.

Meet the Author

Gwidon Stachowiak is a Professor at Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia, specializing in tribology. His research interests include the development of methods for description of multiscale 3D surface topographies, tribocorrosion, and optimization of 3D surface textures for hydrodynamic contacts.

Andrew W. Batchelor has been involved in tribology for 30 years and has taught tribology at universities in Australia, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia and India. He has written books on topics relating to materials degradation, biomaterials and bioengineering.
