The book is based largely on the notes for a course of lectures on friction,
wear and lubrication application to machine design given to students in the
Department of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University of Gdansk
and in the Mechanical Engineering Department, Brunei University.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to some of my former
colleagues from the Technical University of Gdansk where my own study of
I owe a particular debt of gratitude to Dr B. J. Briscoe of
the Imperial College of Science and Technology, who helped me in many
different ways to continue my research in this subject. Finally, special
thanks are due to my wife Alicja for her patience and understanding during
the preparation of the manuscript.
