Tribological Research and Design for Engineering Systems by Duncan Dowson

Book Description

These papers represent the proceedings from the 29th Leeds-Lyon Symposium on Tribology, 'Tribological Research and Design for Engineering Systems' which was held in September 2002. Over 130 delegates from 18 countries attended the symposium, and the extensive discussions generated over 150 written questions and responses, which are documented at the end of this proceedings volume. There have been many advances in the field of tribology in recent years, with progress being made in the engineering and interaction of surfaces; micro and nano-tribology; elastohydrodynamics; surface films; surface texture; tribochemistry; wear and life prediction; with both experimental and theoretical contributions. These advances were reviewed, and the impact of this understanding on the fundamentals upon total engineering activity in design, manufacture and machine operation were considered. Readership: Scientists and researchers in the field of tribology.

Life Cycle Tribology by Duncan Dowson Life Cycle Tribology, Hardback (October 2005)

The 31st Leeds-Lyon Symposium on Tribology was held at Trinity and All Saints College in Leeds under the title "Life Cycle Tribology" from 7th September until 10th September 2004. This work includes areas such as: automotive tribology, bearings, bio-degradability and sustainability, bio-tribology, condition monitoring, contact mechanics, and more.

Surface Generation in Ultra-Precision Diamond Turning by Duncan Dowson Surface Generation in Ultra-Precision Diamond Turning, Hardback (December 2002)

Part of the "Engineering Research Series", this book focuses on the aspect of modelling nano surface generation in ultra precision single point diamond turning (SPDT). It also studies potential industrial applications in the prediction of surface quality, the process optimization, and precision mould manufacturing.

Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics of Offshore Structures by Duncan Dowson Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics of Offshore Structures, Hardback (December 2000)

This text contains the results of an investigation undertaken to assess the fatigue and fracture performance of steels used in the offshore industry.

History of Tribology by Duncan Dowson History of Tribology, Hardback (January 1998)

Covering the topic of tribology, this text looks at its development through all the major periods in the history of science and technology, including the much-neglected Middle Ages and the Renaissance. This edition includes new material covering recents developments in the field.
