    Abstract

    The objective and intended audience for this book are clearly stated in the Preface: “This book is intended to explain the wear analysis method and its implementation and to provide sufficient information for the performance of most wear analyses. It is intended primarily for engineers.” Perhaps, the phrase “author's wear analysis method,” should probably be substituted in place of “the wear analysis method,” which implies that there is only one. In fact, there are several handbooks and tribology texts on the market today that describe some form of wear analysis. While the author's approach shares many key attributes with the others, it represents a unique perspective gained after 40 years of experience in the field of tribology. The approach he provides is sufficiently general to cover a wide range of wear problems.
