Engineering Tribology, Third Edition

As with the former variation, the 3rd variation of Engineering Tribology offers a radical realizing of friction and put on utilizing applied sciences similar to lubrication and unique fabrics. Tribology is a posh subject with its personal terminology and really expert techniques, but is very important all through all engineering disciplines, together with mechanical layout, aerodynamics, fluid dynamics and biomedical engineering.

Differential heat of wetting for some substances. <24) When the enthalpy of wetting is expressed in terms of unit mass of dry material, Krischer(21) gives the following values: wool 42 to 46, wood cellulose 50 to 58, synthetic fibres 92 to 100 kJ/kg dry solid. The specific heat of moisture is less when bound that when free; values for water in the hygroscopic region have been found to vary from 2*1 to 3-3 kJ/kg °C. 10 shows graphs of the differential enthalpy of wetting against moisture content for viscose,(24) pinewood and potatoes.

This potential for a cylindrical pore is simply hg (compare the gravitational potential per unit mass which is mgh/m).

Moisture within a porous body will not present plane, but curved surfaces at the menisci in the capillaries. Since free energy is needed to stretch a plane surface into a convex one, there is a corresponding rise in the vapour pressure. Conversely, if a plane surface is pushed into a concave one, the vapour pressure is lowered. The change in vapour pressure from p° to p°c over the curved menisci is given by the Kelvin equation,(4) p°c V = 2aVL cos Θ rRT (26) where r is the radius of curvature and Θ is the contact angle of wetting.
