A fully updated version of the popular Introduction to Tribology, this book introduces MEMS, nanotribology and magnetic surface storage technologies as well as the breakthroughs in tribology at the nano- and micro- level. Considerations of friction and wear have been fully revised to include recent analysis and data work at the nanoscale level. Friction mechanisms have also been reapproached in light of current developments. Wear mechanisms are also given particular focus and reassessed from current viewpoint. Since the publication of the first edition, Micro- and Nano-tribology has grown substantially and so significant new work on friction, wear and lubrication on nanoscale using atomic force microscopy is approached. Readers are also given an introduction to new significant modeling work in these areas. Furthermore, tribological components and applications and details on micro- nano-components and their applications in bio- and nano-technology give the book an additional dimension.
