Tribology in Environmental Design 2000 is a collection of papers from a conference held at Bournemouth University, UK, in September 2000. The papers explore the role of tribology in the context of product design and how this influences environmental as well as product life-cycle consequences. Recent concerns of environmental product sustainability require that tribological issues be addressed early in the product design stage.
Drawing together expertise in this multidisciplinary field, this volume assists in a better understanding of the issues relating to environmental design.
Topics covered include: "Life-orientated products", "Product life design tool", "Life-cycle assessment for optimized products", "Surface engineering", "Lubricants", "Test methods", "Advanced materials I", "Analytical studies", "Advanced materials II" and an "Authors' index".
Tribology in Environmental Design 2000 provides an excellent opportunity to present to the product designer the wider tribological implications on the whole life-cycle of the product. This includes manufacturing processes and the product's use phase, which need to be considered if companies are to satisfy environmental criteria.
