About this book

Sliding friction is one of the oldest problems in physics and certainly one of the most important from a practical point of view. The ability to produce durable low-friction surfaces and lubricant fluids has become an important factor in the miniaturization of moving components in many technological devices, e.g. magnetic storage, recording systems, miniature motors, and aerospace components. This book presents a broad overview of friction and an in-depth treatment of several fundamental and related topics. This monograph will be useful to physicists, chemists, materials scientists, and engineers who want to understand sliding friction. The book (or parts of it) could also form the basis for a modern undergraduate or graduate course on tribology. The author has been honored by the Volvo prize (1981), the Walter-Schottky prize (1996), and the John Yarwood Memorial Medal (1998). New topics covered in this second edition include nanoindentation, wear in combustion engines, effects of humidity, rolling and sliding of carbon nanotubes and the friction dynamics of granular materials.

Reviews

This comprehensive and well-written book is entirely devoted to fundamental aspects of friction, and especially to new theoretical and technological problems of sliding friction. The book can be very useful to physicists, chemists, materials scientists and engineer who want to understand the basic aspects of sliding friction.
