This second edition of Handbook of Micro/Nanotribology addresses the rapid evolution within this field, serving as a reference for the novice and the expert alike. Two parts divide this handbook: Part I covers basic studies, and Part II addresses design, construction, and applications to magnetic storage devices and MEMS.Discussions include:surface physics and methods for physically and chemically characterizing solid surfacesroughness characterization and static contact models using fractal analysissliding at the interface and friction on an atomic scalescratching and wear as a result of slidingnanofabrication/nanomachining as well as nano/picoindentationlubricants for minimizing friction and wearsurface forces and microrheology of thin liquid filmsmeasurement of nanomechanical properties of surfaces and thin filmsatomic-scale simulations of interfacial phenomenamicro/nanotribology and micro/nanomechanics of magnetic storage devicesThis comprehensive book contains 16 chapters contributed by more than 20 international researchers. In each chapter, the presentation starts with macroconcepts and then lead to microconcepts. With more than 500 illustrations and 50 tables, Handbook of Micro/Nanotribology covers the range of relevant topics, including characterization of solid surfaces, measurement techniques and applications, and theoretical modeling of interfaces.What's New in the Second Edition?

Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
