  • Tribology-ABC

    A web site providing a forum for students and lecturers to share ideas on tribology research. The site also includes useful software for calculating a wide range tribological contact conditions.

  • Weirs - Open Channel Flow Rate Measurement

    Weirs are structures consisting of an obstruction such as a dam or bulkhead placed across the open channel with a specially shaped opening or notch. The flow rate over a weir is a function of the head on the weir. Common weir constructions are the rectangular weir, the triangular or v-notch weir, and the broad-crested weir.

  • Industrial Engineers : Occupational Outlook Handbook: : U ...

    Industrial engineers find ways to eliminate wastefulness in production processes. They devise efficient systems that integrate workers, machines, materials, information, and energy to make a product or provide a service. Depending on their tasks, industrial engineers work either in offices or in the ...

  • Martini - What is Tribology?

    Introduction to Tribology. ... The field is necessarily interdisciplinary and utilizes skills from mechanical engineering, materials science and engineering, chemistry and chemical engineering and more. ... Wear is typically quantified using what is called a wear rate, which is how fast material is .

    with low wear rates and stable friction values should prevail for most of the lifetime of the system, but low steady-state wear rates will eventually alter clearances or surface properties to the extent that components fail, during a brief, final, catastrophic stage during which wear rates are high and severe surface damage occurs.

  • Calculation of Wear Rate | Journal of Fluids Engineering ...

    The suggested criteria allow us to determine conditions which cause these types of wear to appear. It is shown that the rate of wear, i.e., the ratio of height of the worn layer to the distance of sliding at elastic contact depends on the elasticity modulus, roughness, friction coefficient, nominal pressure, rupture stress of material, and on ...
