Summary and Info
This new edition continues to maintain a balance between the theory and application of the technology, giving particular emphasis to tribology in aerospace equipment, steam and gas turbines, motors and generators, transportation and marine equipment, and appliances. Since publication of the first edition, the authors have published 14 journal articles on new research into the field, and this has provided the basis for a thorough update of all material as well as 2 entirely new chapters on seals and bearing failure modes.Content: Chapter 1 Tribology – Friction, Wear, and Lubrication (pages 1–21): Chapter 2 Lubricants and Lubrication (pages 23–61): Chapter 3 Surface Texture and Interactions (pages 63–88): Chapter 4 Bearing Materials (pages 89–112): Chapter 5 Fundamentals of Viscous Flow (pages 113–142): Chapter 6 Reynolds Equation and Applications (pages 143–171): Chapter 7 Thrust Bearings (pages 173–199): Chapter 8 Journal Bearings (pages 201–261): Chapter 9 Squeeze?Film Bearings (pages 263–298): Chapter 10 Hydrostatic Bearings (pages 299–319): Chapter 11 Gas Bearings (pages 321–359): Chapter 12 Dry and Starved Bearings (pages 361–387): Chapter 13 Selecting Bearing Type and Size (pages 389–423): Chapter 14 Principles and Operating Limits (pages 425–457): Chapter 15 Friction, Wear and Lubrication (pages 459–485): Chapter 16 Seal Fundamentals (pages 487–529): Chapter 17 Condition Monitoring and Failure Analysis (pages 531–550):
