Friction, lubrication, adhesion, and put on are universal actual phenomena in way of life and in lots of key applied sciences. This e-book explains how those tribological phenomena originate from atomistic and microscale actual phenomena and exhibits how this realizing can be utilized to resolve macroscale tribology difficulties. The booklet is meant to serve either as a textbook for complex undergraduate and graduate classes in tribology and as an advent to the sector for these scientists and engineers operating with applied sciences the place an excellent clutch of tribology is essential.
