Those working with tribology often have a background inmechanical engineering, while people working with lubricantdevelopment have a chemistry/chemical engineering background. Thismeans they have a tradition of approaching problems in differentways. Today’s product development puts higher demands ontiming and quality, requiring collaboration between people withdifferent backgrounds. However, they can lack understanding of eachother’s challenges as well as a common language, and so thisbook aims to bridge the gap between these two areas. Lubricants: Introduction to Properties and Performanceprovides an easy to understand overview of tribology and lubricantchemistry. The first part of the book is theoretical and providesan introduction to tribological contact, friction, wear andlubrication, as well as the basic concepts regarding properties andthe most commonly made analyses on lubricants. Base fluids andtheir properties and common additives used in lubricants are alsocovered. The second part of the book is hands-on and introduces thereader to the actual formulations and the evaluation of theirperformance. Different applications and their correspondinglubricant formulations are considered and tribological test methodsare discussed. Finally used oil characterisation and surfacecharacterisation are covered which give the reader an introductionto different methods of characterising used oils and surfaces,respectively. Key features: Combines chemistry and tribology of lubricants into one unifiedapproach Covers the fundamental theory, describing lubricant propertiesas well as base fluids and additives Contains practical information on the formulations oflubricants and evaluates their performance Considers applications of lubricants in hydraulics, gears andcombustion engines Lubricants: Introduction to Properties and Performance isa comprehensive reference for industry practitioners (tribologists,lubricant technicians, and lubricant chemists, etc) and is also anexcellent source of information for graduate and undergraduatestudents.

Long awaited, this textbook fills the gap for convincing concepts to describe amorphous solids. Adopting a unique approach, the author develops a framework that lays the foundations for a theory of amorphousness. He unravels the scientific mysteries surrounding the topic, replacing rather vague notions of amorphous materials as disordered crystalline solids with the well-founded concept of ideal amorphous solids. A classification of amorphous materials into inorganic glasses, organic glasses, glassy metallic alloys, and thin films sets the scene for the development of the model of ideal amorphous solids, based on topology- and statistics-governed rules of three-dimensional sphere packing, which leads to structures with no short, mid or long-range order. This general model is then concretized to the description of specific compounds in the four fundamental classes of amorphous solids, as well as amorphous polyethylene and poly(methyl)methacrylate, emphasizing its versatility and descriptive power. Finally, he includes example applications to indicate the abundance of amorphous materials in modern-day technology, thus illustrating the importance of a better understanding of their structure and properties. Equally ideal as supplementary reading in courses on crystallography, mineralogy, solid state physics, and materials science where amorphous materials have played only a minor role until now.

Experts must be able to analyze and distinguish all materials, or combinations of materials, in use today—whether they be metals, ceramics, polymers, semiconductors, or composites. To understand a material’s structure, how that structure determines its properties, and how that material will subsequently work in technological applications, researchers apply basic principles of chemistry, physics, and biology to address its scientific fundamentals, as well as how it is processed and engineered for use. Emphasizing practical applications and real-world case studies, Materials Characterization Techniques presents the principles of widely used, advanced surface and structural characterization techniques for quality assurance, contamination control, and process improvement. This useful volume: Explores scientific processes to characterize materials using modern technologies Provides analysis of materials’ performance under specific use conditions Focuses on the interrelationships and interdependence between processing, structure, properties, and performance Details the sophisticated instruments involved in an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the wide range of mutually interacting processes, mechanisms, and materials Covers electron, X-ray-photoelectron, and UV spectroscopy; scanning-electron, atomic-force, transmission-electron, and laser-confocal-scanning-florescent microscopy, and gel electrophoresis chromatography Presents the fundamentals of vacuum, as well as X-ray diffraction principles Explaining appropriate uses and related technical requirements for characterization techniques, the authors omit lengthy and often intimidating derivations and formulations. Instead, they emphasize useful basic principles and applications of modern technologies used to characterize engineering materials, helping readers grasp micro- and nanoscale properties. This text will serve as a valuable guide for scientists and engineers involved in characterization and also as a powerful introduction to the field for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

Microstructural characterization is usually achieved by allowingsome form of probe to interact with a carefully prepared specimen.The most commonly used probes are visible light, X-ray radiation, ahigh-energy electron beam, or a sharp, flexible needle. These fourtypes of probe form the basis for optical microscopy, X-raydiffraction, electron microscopy, and scanning probemicroscopy. Microstructural Characterization of Materials, 2nd Editionis an introduction to the expertise involved in assessing themicrostructure of engineering materials and to the experimentalmethods used for this purpose. Similar to the first edition, this2nd edition explores the methodology of materials characterizationunder the three headings of crystal structure, microstructuralmorphology, and microanalysis. The principal methods ofcharacterization, including diffraction analysis, opticalmicroscopy, electron microscopy, and chemical microanalyticaltechniques are treated both qualitatively and quantitatively. Anadditional chapter has been added to the new edition to coversurface probe microscopy, and there are new sections on digitalimage recording and analysis, orientation imaging microscopy,focused ion-beam instruments, atom-probe microscopy, and 3-D imagereconstruction.
