Engineering Tribology by Gwidon W. Stachowiak
Book DescriptionAs with the previous edition, the third edition of Engineering Tribology provides a thorough understanding of friction and wear using technologies such as lubrication and special materials. Tribology is a complex topic with its own terminology and specialized concepts, yet is vitally important throughout all engineering disciplines, including mechanical design, aerodynamics, fluid dynamics and biomedical engineering. This edition includes updated material on the hydrodynamic aspects of tribology as well as new advances in the field of biotribology, with a focus throughout on the engineering applications of tribology. This book offers an extensive range if illustrations which communicate the basic concepts of tribology in engineering better than text alone. All chapters include an extensive list of references and citations to facilitate further in-depth research and thorough navigation through particular subjects covered in each chapter. * Includes newly devised end-of-chapter problems * Provides a comprehensive overview of the mechanisms of wear, lubrication and friction in an accessible manner designed to aid non-specialists. * Gives a reader-friendly approach to the subject using a graphic illustrative method to break down the typically complex problems associated with tribology.

Engineering Tribology, Hardback (November 2013)
Provides a thorough understanding of friction and wear using technologies such as lubrication and special materials. This book focuses in particular on hydrodynamic, elastohydrodynamic, and hydrostatic lubrication techniques and examines all manner of wear, including abrasive, adhesive, corrosive, and fatigue.
Wear, Hardback (November 2005)
This excellent publication is the culmination of an idea spawned from a special issue on Wear in the Journal of Engineering Tribology that was guest edited by the author.

Author Biography - Gwidon W. Stachowiak
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.
