The use of lubricants is as old as mankind but the scientific analysis of lubrication, friction and wear, as an aspect of tribology is relatively new. Only recently have lubricants begun to be viewed as functional elements in engineering and this group of substances is also receiving increased attention from engineers. — This book provides chemists and engineers with a clear interdisciplinary introduction and orientation to all major lubricant applications, focusing not only on the various products but also on specific application engineering criteria.
