The multidisciplinary nature of tribology, the conflicting theories
and approaches to it found in the literature, plus the fact that
definitions of the same phenomenon often differ widely, prompted
the authors to compile this work.
The aim of this encyclopedia is to provide information on specific
tribological terms. The entire field of tribology encompassing
lubrication, friction and wear, i.e. the science and technology of
interacting surfaces in relative motion, is covered. An extensive
description of the chemical and biological aspects of tribology is
given, including a wide range of current references and authors.
The reader is also referred to relevant literature for most of the
terms listed. The information presented has been made as up-to-date
as possible, taking into account both the theoretical and practical
nature of the subject.
The encyclopedia will be an indispensable reference source in the
work of engineers, chemists, physicists, metallurgists, materials
and surface scientists, biotechnologists, as well as research
workers in these fields.
