Friction Science and Technology - From Concepts to Applications

In our latest episode, author Peter Blau discusses his book, Friction Science and Technology - From Concepts to Applications.

Peter goes over how the book came about, how it differs from other books on the subject, the topics included, the intended audience and its use - how to apply the concepts presented.

His thoughts on the future of the field: "I would hope that those who practice tribology will realize that it isn’t so much a single discipline as it is a set of multi-disciplinary problems that use whatever tools are appropriate in each case."

This quote makes sense, since the book itself is all about covering core concepts and applying those concepts to a variety of conditions.
