Modelling of Chemical Wear.pdf
Modelling of chemical wear and its relevance to practice is a one-stop resource for students, researchers and professionals seeking quick and effective tribological evaluations of products which reduce environmental impact and energy efficiency. This book considers optimizing additive combinations by proper methodology, bridging the gap between theory and practice. It defines effective approaches to evaluate antiwear chemical additives commonly used in industry, enhancing the mapping ability of their performance to reduce the extent of full scale evaluations. * Provides full coverage of tribology in four concise chapters, including up-and-coming nano-level tribology and additive combination techniques* Offers effective empirical modelling of chemical wear, along with computer programs relevant to industry standards to help you improve your test methods.* Outlines effective methodology for optimization of additive packages, relevant to the present search for eco-friendly combinations.
With 38 years of research experience in basic and applied tribology, Professor Sethuramiah's major interest lies in boundary lubrication and wear. He was past president of Tribology Society of India (TSI), has authored the book, 'Lubricated Wear-Science and Technology' in 2003.. Currently he is associated part-time as visiting Professor at Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) and pursuing his interest in tribology research and teaching. He continues his association at the national level as a life member of TSI through teaching tribology and related aspects. Professor Sethuramiah was awarded the lifetime achievement award in R&D by TSI. Dr Rajesh Kumar completed his PhD in the area of running-in and steady state wear processes in 2002 from IIT Delhi. He participates in collaborative tribochemistry research with IIT (BHU) Varanasi. Other research interests cover MEMS, probabilistic machine design, optimization, and DOE. He is life member of Tribology Society of India, actively involved in tribology, DOE and optimization research. Dr Kumar's work on estimation of wear coefficient in a short duration test of real engines under lubricating condition was appreciated by tribologists in an International Conference, ICIT 2006, at IISc Bangalore and received best paper award.
