Tribology covers all aspects of friction, lubrication, and wear. The main emphasis of An Introductory Guide to Industrial Tribology
is on the practical aspects of lubrication and wear as they affect the engineer. The prime objective is to provide the practising engineer with a grasp of the basic mechanisms involved in sliding and rolling contacts between solid surfaces, as well as the basic principles of lubrication, without the need for an extensive study of theory.The book aims to give the engineer in industry a 'feel' for the subject, while at the same time providing sufficient practical information to meet day-to-day needs.
An Introductory Guide to Industrial Tribology is recommended to practising engineers and technicians in industry, to design engineers, and those responsible for specifying plant, to consultants, teachers, to researchers and to students.
