had suspected that, compared to a liquid in bulk form, thin films of a lubricant - on the order of about five molecules, or 20 angstroms, thick - might become perhaps twice as viscous.
break these classifications further into subsets, and also include elastohydrodynamic friction, which accounts for deformation of the solid surfaces.
will find the guide useful as a reference for ASTM test numbers and test details.
The book is aimed at practicing tribologists
and researchers, as well as anyone concerned with tribology issues on a microscale or smaller level.
Sponsored and co-published by the Society of Tribologists
and Lubrication Engineers, this is part of three-volume handbook intended to provide up-to-date information on the science and technology of friction, lubrication, and wear.
Lauer received the award at the annual Joint Conference of ASME and the Society of Tribologists
and Lubrication Engineers, which was held this month in San Diego.
The Failure Atlas for Hertz Contact Machine Elements aids design engineers, tribologists
, materials scientists, and failure diagnosticians in identifying and diagnosing failure modes and their causes.
