About the Book

This book brings out the solutions to various complex technical problems of mechanical, tribology and engineering sciences concerning hard and soft coatings, adhesion, scratch, wear, tribological studies in bioengineering, cylinder liners, gasoline engines, micro/nano studies in lubricants and additives including effect of electric current and influence of magnetic flux density on bearing surfaces. It also studies diagnosis and investigations of such cases those are closely associated with the significance of tribology in multifold applications. It is useful for engineers and technologists of heavy industry, students, research engineeers/scientists, academicians and others who grapple with the complex problems of testing engineering components and tribology for multifaceted research for further developments. Salient Features: Different investigations, their analysis and solutions detailed are unique in nature. Comprehensive tribo-mechanical testing of hard coatings, multi-sensing advance testing of thin and thick coatings, bond strength, scratch, indentation, wear and adhesion testing, mapping of thin overcoats for nano/micro tribo-metrology. Premature failure of bearings due to various unforeseen causes. Methods of characteristics, evaluation of electrical contact properties of carbon nanotube coated surfaces. Details of theoretical and experimental analysis of magnetic flux density distribution as a diagnostic tool for critical failures of bearings. Friction and wear characteristics of rubber coating in fretting and experimental measurements of visco-elastic properties of polymers. Characterization and simulation of cylinder liner surface finishes and study of low friction ring pack for gasoline engines. Life estimation of turbine oils, besides a non-conventional integral approach for testing of lubricating oils and effect of nano additives on lubricants. Tribological studies in bioengineering including tribo-metrology of skin, micro/nano scale characterization of orthopedic applications and friction studies in bovine knee articular cartilage.
