"Engineering Tribology by John Williams of Cambridge University is an ideal textbook for a first tribology course and a reference of designers and researchers. Engineering Tribology gives the reader an interdisciplinary understanding of tribology including materials constraints. Real design problems and solutions, such as those for journal and rolling element bearings, cams and followers, and heavily loaded gear teeth, elucidate concepts and motivate understanding. The hallmark of this work is the integration of qualitative and quantitative material from a wade variety of disciplines including physics, materials science, and surface and lubricant chemistry, with traditional engineering approaches."--BOOK JACKET.
