Green Tribology, Green Surface Engineering, and Global Warming
Author: Ram Chattopadhyay
Price: $179.00 ASM Member Price: $129.00
Tribology is the science of wear, friction, and lubrication of interacting surfaces in relative motion. Friction and wear result in material and heat loss from the interacting surfaces, thus reducing the efficiency of energy-transformation processes. This book, published in 2014, describes green engineering concepts to improve energy efficiency by reducing energy losses due to friction and wear in metalworking operations and by extending component life.
