An important volume in the "Tribology in Practice" Series (TIPS). Guide to Wear Problems and Testing for Industry is the first publication to make information on solutions to wear problems and testing readily accessible. Engineers in industry will find useful advice on solving problems based on an understanding of basic wear mechanisms. Ways in which new materials can be tested in laboratories are also examined. This will all help successful application in real situations. For research engineers and scientists in testing laboratories and universities, the Guide to Wear Problems and Testing for Industry provides practical guidance on the selection and operation of appropriate wear test methods for various materials and wear mechanisms. COMPLETE CONTENTS:* Introduction* Industrial wear problems* Wear tests to simulate practical conditions* A guide to wear test selection* A guide to the examination of the worn surfaces* A summary of the approach to wear testing. A useful appendix provides detailed descriptions of the various tests and their operating conditions.
Michaele Neale, OBE, FREng, FIMechE is an internationally renowned consulting mechanical engineer and Chairman of Neale Consulting Engineers Limited, who have been involved in solving practical wear problems in industry around the world for 40 years. Mark Gee, DPhil, MIM, MinstP is a principal research scientist at the National Physical Laboratory, where he manages projects concerned with the development of an improved infrastructure for friction and wear testing in the UK. The Tribology in Practice Series aims to be accessible and industry--relevant -- bringing the latest developments in tribological research, as well as established ideas and techniques, to bear on real engineering problems.
