Tribology is the learn of friction, put on and lubrication. lately, the concept that of “green tribology” as “the technological know-how and expertise of the tribological features of ecological stability and of environmental and organic affects” was once brought. the sphere of eco-friendly tribology comprises tribological expertise that mimics residing nature (biomimetic surfaces) and therefore is predicted to be environmentally pleasant, the regulate of friction and put on that's of significance for strength conservation and conversion, environmental facets of lubrication and floor amendment suggestions, and tribological facets of eco-friendly purposes equivalent to wind-power generators or sun panels. This ebook is the 1st finished quantity on eco-friendly tribology. The chapters are ready by way of best specialists of their fields and canopy such issues as biomimetics, environmentally pleasant lubrication, tribology of wind generators and renewable assets of strength, and ecological effect of recent applied sciences of floor treatment.
