Green Tribology PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Green Tribology free pdf Tribology is the study of friction, wear and lubrication. Recently, the concept of "green tribology" as "the science and technology of the tribological aspects of ecological balance and of environmental and biological impacts" was introduced. The field of green tribology includes tribological technology that mimics living nature (biomimetic surfaces) and thus is expected to be environmentally friendly, the control of friction and wear that is of importance for energy conservation and conversion, environmental aspects of lubrication and surface modification techniques, and tribological aspects of green applications such as wind-power turbines or solar panels. This book is the first comprehensive volume on green tribology. The chapters are prepared by leading experts in their fields and cover such topics as biomimetics, environmentally friendly lubrication, tribology of wind turbines and renewable sources of energy, and ecological impact of new technologies of surface treatment.

About Michael Nosonovsky

Michael Nosonovsky is an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. For his work on the scale effect in friction and biomimetic surfaces he was honored in 2008 by ASME Burt L. Newkirk award Prof. Bharat Bhushan is Ohio Eminent Scholar and Howard D. Winbigler Professor Director of Nanoprobe Laboratory for Bio- and Nanotechnology and Biomimetics at Ohio State University. He is an author and editor of more than 10 monographs and about 700 research articles and one of the most prominent tribologists in the world.
