Computer Methods and Experimental Measurements for Surface Effects and Contact Mechanics Publisher: W IT | 2007 | ISBN: 184564073X | 352 pages | PDF | 12 MB
Contains most of the papers presented at the Eighth International Conference on Computer Methods and Experimental Measurements for Surface and Contact Mechanics., held in The New Forest, UK, May 16-18, 2007. The use of surface treatments can reduce the cost of components and extend the life of the elements. Their effect is of particular importance in the case of surfaces undergoing contact, a problem which is addressed throughout the book. Topics covered include: Surface treatments; Thin coatings; Surface problems in contact mechanics; Contact mechanics; Material surfaces in contact; Fracture and fatigue; and New applications.
