Wear Processes in the Transport Engineering
A specific feature of transport, especially maritime transport, is a presence of complex interactions between various components of the system. The presence of the phenomena affects the possibility of varying degrees of complexity and wear processes and destruction materials. Moreover, forecasting and reducing methods of wear intensity are specified in the transport engineering, as well. The issues above will be addressed in this manuscript. Presented in the manuscript results include not only laboratory, modelling and simulation studies, but also long-term studies of real objects. Studies of real objects were made thanks to cooperation with shipowners and stevedoring companies in sea ports. Moreover results basis on the practical experience of authors working on ships.
