Friction Material Composites\xa0is the first volume of the five volumes which strongly educates and updates engineers and other professionals in braking industries, research and test labs. It explains besides the formulation of design processes and its complete manufacturing input. This book gives an idea of mechanisms of friction and how to control them by designing .The book is\xa0 useful for designers\xa0 of automotive, rail and aero industries for designing the brake systems effectively with the integration of friction material composite design which is critical. It clearly\xa0 emphasizes the driving\xa0 safety and how serious designers should\xa0 select the design input. The significance of friction material component like brake pad or a liner as an integral part of the brake system of vehicles is explained. AFM pictures at nanolevel illustrate broadly the explanations given.
