The Principles and Practice of Lubrication A Manual for Petroleum Technologists, Students, Engineers, Oil Salesmen, Etc. Authors: Nash, Alfred W., Bowen, Arthur Riley. From the Publisher. Comprehensively presents the fundamental concepts of lubrication theory needed to properly cope with friction and wear problems. Demonstrates, through multiple numerical examples, how solutions are achieved, and discusses further applications using these concepts. Includes new material on non-rigid surfaces, Cited by: fatty oils and sulfur in mineral oils to improve lubrication under high loads.

Handbook of lubrication: Theory and practice of tribology Latest ASM handbook covers friction, lubrication and wear technology The handbook of industrial oil engineering. THE PRACTICE OF lubrication is an ancient one. Water was probably the first lubricant. When primeval man used water or ice to ease the sliding movement of heavy objects, the idea of lubrica-tion was born. He later found that certain plants and animals contained oily secretions or had natural oils in their tissues. It was found that these oils had theFile Size: KB. Causes of Friction. •Friction is caused by interactions at the surfaces of adjoining parts. •At a microscopic level, all surfaces are. “rough” •Surface peaks (asperities) may bond to one another or protrude into adjoining surface Contact Points Load Load High Points Called Asperities. 20 .
Lubrication: A Practical Guide to Lubricant Selection provides a guide to modern lubrication practice in industry, with emphasis on practical application, selection of lubricants, and significant factors that determine suitability of a lubricant for a specific application. This book fills a niche by specifically and comprehensively focusing on lubrication as part of the overall maintenance program. Under the editorial guidance of two of the most respected names in the field, this seminal work is destined to become an industry standard. Written by the foremost experts in the field, the book is divided into four sections. The first reviews the basic principles of tribology, wear mechanisms, and modes of lubrication. The second section covers the full range of lubricants/coolants, including Format: Hardcover.
