Tribology is one element of many interacting within a vehicle engine and powertrain. In adopting a detailed, theoretical, component approach to solving tribological problems, the minutiae can be overwhelmingly complex and practical solutions become elusive and uneconomic. The system perspective generally adopted in industry, can lead to shortcuts and oversimplifications, industrial projects are subject to ad hoc trial and error, and subsequent fire-fighting activity is required. This book seeks to bridge this divide, using a multi-physics approach to provide sufficient fundamental grounding and understanding of both detailed and approximate analyses thereby making first time right design solutions possible. Tribological issues and solutions in piston systems, valve train systems, engine bearings and drivetrain systems are addressed. New developments in materials, micro-engineering, nano-technology and MEMS are also included.
Key Features: reviews fundamental aspects of physics in motion, specifically the multi-body approach to multi physics describes essential issues in tribology from surface phenomena in thin film tribology to impact dynamics exmines specific engine and powertrain sub-systems including engine bearings, piston systems and value trains.
