Tribomaterials: Properties and Selection for Friction, Wear, and Erosion Applications
Chapter 3: Dealing with Friction in Design Engineering
This chapter discusses the effect of friction in the context of design. It explains how friction coefficients are determined and how they are used to make sizing and selection decisions. It covers practical issues associated with rolling friction, the use of lubricants, and the tribology of metal, ceramic, and polymer surfaces in contact. It also discusses the nature of rolling friction and provides helpful design guidelines.
