Scratching of Materials and Applications Book Description :

The surface characterizations of engineering materials effects their scratch/abrasion/Mar resistance, coating adhesion/strength, and abrasive wear mechanism. Scratching of Materials and Applications has chapters devoted to direct industrial application and contains some of the important works that are being conducted. Scratch testing of materials has grown extensively since the earlier days of the Mohs Scale for ranking minerals according to their relative scratch resistance. This test has been used on metals, ceramics, glasses, polymers and coatings of various types and thicknesses. The chapters are grouped according to the type of the engineering materials used. The beginning chapters relate mostly to bulk polymers, which are followed by different types of coatings (hard wear resistant to the diamond-like carbon coatings) and finally, chapters on the application of scratching technique to metals and ceramics are included at the end of the book. Thus, the book covers a fairly wide spectrum of engineering materials which are useful to engineers and researchers. * Balances theoretical science with practical application * Demonstrates real-life applications within industry * Written experts in the fields of materials, tribology and surface mechanics

Atomic Force Microscopy Scanning Nearfield Optical Microscopy and Nanoscratching Book Description :

Making a clear distinction is made between nano- and micro-mechanical testing for physical reasons, this monograph describes the basics and applications of the supermicroscopies AFM and SNOM, and of the nanomechanical testing on rough and technical natural surfaces in the submicron range down to a lateral resolution of a few nm. New or improved instrumentation, new physical laws and unforeseen new applications in all branches of natural sciences (around physics, chemistry, mineralogy, materials science, biology and medicine) and nanotechnology are covered as well as the sources for pitfalls and errors. It outlines the handling of natural and technical samples in relation to those of flat standard samples and emphasizes new special features. Pitfalls and sources of errors are clearly demonstrated as well as their efficient remedy when going from molecularly flat to rough surfaces. The academic or industrial scientist learns how to apply the principles for tackling their scientific or manufacturing tasks that include roughness far away from standard samples.

101 Different Ways to Build Homes and Pens for Your Animals Book Description :

Animals need their own space, and nowhere is this more apparent that for those who own multiple animals. When not given their own private space to be alone in many animals, especially dogs and livestock will become overly territorial, marking space, and fighting with other animals or even humans for a place to call their own. Yet many owners put off or overlook the need for building homes for their animals because they think it might be too hard or time consuming. That could not be further from the truth however and this book aims to prove just that. Written for every pet and livestock owner who has sighed or groaned at the prospect of building a home for their animals, this book shows you 101 different ways you can cut cost and time effectively build a viable home for your animals. You will learn in this book how to create homes from scratch for dozens of different kinds of animals. First and foremost you will learn how to assess the needs of your animals according to breed and personality, from indoor domesticated pets to outdoor livestock. You will learn what features these homes need to match your animals according to size, feeding habits, gender, whether you have more than one, and whether they will be bred or not. You will learn which building materials are best for which breeds' homes and how these materials can be purchased and used by yourself at home. Experts ranging from dog and cat breeders to small farmers have been interviewed for this book to learn more about their experiences with animal homes and they have provided a number of insights into how these homes can and should be built. More than 101 different plans and methods for home building will be laid out for you in detailed methods that allow you to effectively start building these homes and seeing to the specific needs of every animal in your home or on your farm.

Micro Nanotribology and Its Applications Book Description :

Micro/nanotribology as a field is concerned with experimental and theoretical investigations of processes ranging from atomic and molecular scales to the microscale, occurring during adhesion, friction, wear, and thin-film lubrication at sliding surfaces. As a field it is truly interdisciplinary, but this confronts the would-be entrant with the difficulty of becoming familiar with the basic theories and applications: the area is not covered in any undergraduate or graduate scientific curriculum. The present work commences with a history of tribology and micro/nanotribology, followed by discussions of instrumentation, basic theories of friction, wear and lubrication on nano- to microscales, and their industrial applications. A variety of research instruments are covered, including a variety of scanning probe microscopes and surface force apparatus. Experimental research and modelling are expertly dealt with, the emphasis throughout being applied aspects.
