The most current data available on the impact of vibrations and stiffness on test apparatus and machine wear. This comprehensive volume includes wide-ranging examples of machine wear, current experimental and analysis techniques to investigate these effects, as well as an extensive bibliography on the subject. Specific areas addressed:
How vibrations can reduce or increase wear and friction
Methods to study vibration effects
Self-induced vs.machine-induced vibrations
Evaluating different design parameters on bearing load dynamics
Increasing spindle life in grinding machines
Orthopedic biomaterial wear tests
The effects of ultra sonic vibration on tool life.
