Summary "This book discusses "tribological interface" that consists of two solid surfaces in contact with or without fluids in between. This specific type of interface is commonly seen in reality and extremely important in engineering applications. This book is written for engineering researchers and design engineers as well as graduate and senior undergraduate students. Mathematical treatments are tailored to a first degree in engineering often without rigorous descriptions and proofs. It focuses on the basic concepts, mathematic models, numerical solution procedures, major results and their physical meanings, as well as engineering applications"-- Provided by publisher

Notes Q. Jane Wang received her Ph. D. in mechanical engineering from Northwestern University, IL, USA, in 1993. She taught for five years at Florida International University, Miami, FL, USA, and is now a Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Northwestern University, USA. She was elected Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) in 2009 and Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) in 2007. Her research interests are mainly in the areas of contact and interfacial mechanics and tribology of advanced materials and novel lubricants. Dong Zhu received his Ph. D. in mechanical engineering from Tsinghua University of China in April of 1984. He started to work at the Center for Engineering Tribology, Northwestern University, USA, as a Research Fellow in January of 1986. He joined the Technical Center of Aluminum Company of America in the beginning of 1991 then Eaton Innovation Center in 1994, doing tribology and surface engineering related research and product development. After his retirement from Eaton, he was appointed to a Professor position at Sichuan University of China and Adjunct Professor at Tsinghua University. He is now an Adjunct Professor at Harbin Engineering University. He was elected Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) in 2007 and Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) in 2006. His research interests mainly include elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL), mixed lubrication, surface engineering and tribological testing
