This new ASTM monograph presents the principles and applications of tribology in micro- nano-scale and discusses some of the challenges faced by tribilogists since the development of new manufacturing techniques for electronic products. It covers a broad range of topics on micro-nanotribology, with emphasis on the physical and chemical aspects and on bridging fundamental studies and applications.
Experimental methods and measure techniques
Fluid film lubrication
Molecular film lubrication
Gas lubrication in nano-gap
Mixed lubrication in nano-scale
Applications of tribology in magnetic record systems
Chemical mechanical polishing of ultra-smooth surfaces
This is a valuable resource for tribologists, mechanical engineers, lubrication engineers, and material scientist and engineers.
