Summary

This introductory course in tribology (science of friction, lubrication and wear) has specific goals : to present the basic principles of tribology, to develop the attitude to analyse tribological and to illustrate correlations between materials and tribological properties.

Content

BASIC PRINCIPLES Elastic/plastic contacts, friction, lubrication, deformation and fracture in contacts, wear, third body and tribological flow, experimental techniques.

MATERIALS AND CONTACTS Metals and alloys, ceramics, coatings, polymers and composites.

SURFACE CHEMISTRY AND TRIBOLOGY Reaction layers, tribocorrosion, boundary lubricated wear.

APPLICATIONS EXAMPLES Biomedical implants, micro-technology.

Keywords

Wear, friction, lubrication,
