Item description for Electric Contacts: Theory and Application by Ragnar Holm...

The fourth and last edition of this book was published in 1967. Although it has been out of print for many years it is still considered the "Bible" of contact theory and is referred to in almost every scientific paper dealing with electric contacts. This classic book serves as a basis for understanding of contacts and their use in technology. It contains fundamental theory, critical information and a richness of details including a pertinent literature list. A chapter is devoted to the tunnel effect, several chapters treat such friction and wear phenomena which are closely connected with the theory of electric contacts. Subjects covered include tarnishing of contact material, fritting of tarnish films in contacts, material transfer in switches and commutation, and the theory of thermal contacts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Electric Contacts: Theory and Application?

Annuler le livre d'occasion à mon nom, c'est une erreur.
Je voudrais en commander un. Quel est la prochaine édition de "Electric Contacts: Theory and Applications"
The Electric Contacts Bible  Mar 31, 2000
Ragnar Holm, the namesake of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Holm Conference on electrical contacts originally penned this masterpiece back in 1946.

The amazing thing is that the book is just as valuable today as it was back then. To see it back in print is very exciting (I dare you to try to find a used copy, they are almost impossible to find).

Everyone who has a professional or acedemic intrest in switching of sliding electrical contacts needs to start their study of the subject right here with the late Mr. Holm's book.

The book is an invaluable tool for understanding the nature of electric contacts from the very begining.

If you work with design or evaluation of relays, micorswitches, circuit breakers, potentiometers, mating terminals or any other device where electrical contact is an essential function YOU NEED THIS BOOK.

In the book you'll find theoretical as well as practical examples and equations (fluency in calculus recommended, but not required). Information on contact materials is also included.

If you even have a passing interest in the field of electric contacts you must take this opportunity to own a copy of this book.
