Tribology and Dynamics of Engine and Powertrain: Fundamentals, Applications and Future Trends

Author:
Tribology and Dynamics of Engine and Powertrain: Fundamentals, Applications and Future Trends provides an authoritative and comprehensive overview of the disciplines of dynamics and tribology using a multi-physics and multi-scale approach to improve automotive engine and powertrain technology.

The book reviews the fundamental aspects of the physics of motion, particularly the multi-body approach to multi-physics, multi-scale problem solving in tribology. Fundamental issues in tribology are described in detail, from surface phenomena in thin-film tribology, to impact dynamics, fluid film and elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication means of measurement and evaluation.

It also includes many aspects of the physics of motion at a multitude of interaction scales from large displacement dynamics to noise and vibration tribology, all of which affect engines and powertrains.

This title addresses engine and powertrain issues, engine bearings, piston systems, valve trains, transmission and many aspects of drivetrain systems. It considers the emerging areas of micro-engines and gears as well as nano-scale surface engineering.
