In this edition, the breakthroughs in tribology at the nano- and micro- level as well as recent developments in nanotechnology and magnetic storage technologies are introduced. A new chapter on the emerging field of green tribology and biomimetics is included. Introduces the topic of tribology from a mechanical engineering, mechanics and materials science points of view. Newly updated chapter covers both the underlying theory and the current applications of tribology to industry. Updated write-up on nanotribology and nanotechnology and introduction of a new chapter on green tribology and biomimetics.
