Covering both the mechanical and materials aspects of tribology, this accessible text provides the scientific and practical foundations necessary for a thorough understanding of the phenomena of friction, wear and lubrication. With an emphasis on the behaviour of materials, the book compares the tribological behaviour of metals, ceramics and polymers, equipping the reader to make reasoned judgements when confronted by practical problems.
