An understanding of friction and wear behavior of materials is crucial in order to improve their performance and durability. New research is providing the opportunity to solve common problems relating to the development of materials, surface modification, coatings, and processing methods across industries.

Processing Techniques and Tribological Behavior of Composite Materials provides relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings on the strategic role of composite tribology in a variety of settings. This book is intended for students, researchers, academicians, and professionals working in industries where wear reduction and performance enhancement of machines and machine elements is essential to success.

Reviews and Testimonials

Editors Tyagi and Davim present students, academics, researchers, and professionals working in a variety of contexts with a collection of academic papers, and scholarly articles focused on the tibological behavior and processing techniques of composite materials. The editors have organized the thirteen contributions that make up the main body of the text in three sections devoted to processing polymer matrix composites, biotribology and biomimetics, and the tribology of composite materials.
