This invaluable reference deals with the processes of friction and wear. It recommends optimal parameters of materials and the most efficient types of joint design. The principles of both material selection, surfacing machining and assigning the performance regimes are considered.
Topics discussed include: Fundamental principles of the interaction of solids due to external (rubbing) friction, Methods for the determination of the tribotechnical characteristics that are necessary for the calculation of the friction forces and the rate of wear, Sleeve bearings, Flat sliding supports, Frictional power transmissions, and Friction in screw and interference fit joints.
