The result of Kenneth C Ludema's 35 years of teaching and research, Friction, Wear, Lubrication: A Textbook in Tribology presents a broad view of the many aspects of tribology. All major aspects of this discipline are included, from mechanical to materials to chemical to mechanics. Ludema's key research areas - marginally lubricated wear and friction - will be of special interest to readers who would like to find reliable and useful data on friction and wear rates.
Written primarily as a text/reference, this informative volume describes how to solve design problems in friction and wear. By applying close and informed observation of presently operating tribological systems, along with careful design of simulative tests, readers can develop their own conclusions of tribological results. This book is intended to bring everyone solving problems in friction and wear to the same understanding of what is (and what is not) involved in this exciting field.
Seniors and graduate students, as well as practicing engineers employed in a wide range of industries will find this book to be an essential and practical resource.

Review

This book is the 'final' form of a set of course notes I have used since 1964. Hundreds of students and practicing engineers have helped me over the years to gain my present perspective on the complicated and fascinating field of tribology. I hope you will find this book useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent text on tribology! Jan. 17 2000
By K. Helmetag - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This text is a well-balanced treatment of the very complex topic of tribology. It is very difficult to cover the subject as so many disciplines are involved and so much expertise is required. Dr. Ludema has done an excellent job of pulling the many views of friction and wear together in one non-threatening book.
Although the text is a bit light on chemistry, the author definitely conveys the importance of the science to tribology.
The section on friction and wear testing should be required reading for all new tribologists and lubrication engineers.
