Books
Complete Guide to Predictive and Preventive Maintenance - Unlike other books that only focus on the engineering issues (task lists) or management issues (CMMS) associated with predictive and preventive maintenance, this in-depth resource is the first to give true emphasis to the four aspects of success in preventive maintenance systems - engineering, management, economic, and psychological.
Failure Analysis and Prevention - Provides you a comprehensive coverage of every aspect of this critical field - from a review of the engineering aspects of failure analysis to detailed discussions of the major types of failures to in-depth analysis of failures of specific components and assemblies.
Gear Noise and Vibration - Focuses on problems of design, metrology, development, and troubleshooting when noise and vibration occur.
Handbook of Case Histories in Failure Analysis, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 - Learn how others have solved failures in various industries.  Among the few books using fracture mechanics analysis, fitness-for-service, and life prediction methods for identifying the sources of failures and developing means of failure prevention.
Lubrication for Industry - Written for maintenance managers and practitioners, this book provides a fundamental understanding of how and why effective lubrication practices are an essential aspect of industrial equipment maintenance.
Lubrication Fundamentals - Covers lubricating oils, lubricating greases, synthetic lubricants, machine elements, lubricant application, and much more.
Machinery Vibration: Alignment - The misalignment of shafts and other components is one of the most common causes of vibration and failures. Here, at last, is a practical handbook that enables you to eliminate this costly problem. 
Machinery Vibration: Balancing - If you're responsible for the production, installation, or maintenance of equipment, this practical, how-to guide offers proven methods for balancing machinery in order to reduce production loss, maintenance costs, and expensive downtime due to machinery failure.
Machinery Vibration: Measurement & Analysis - Ninety percent of all machine failures are signaled months, even years, in advance by changes in machine vibrations.  Some future failures are even predictable upon initial start-up.  By understanding a machine's vibration "signature," you can diagnose, solve, and prevent problems, as well as reduce the cost of maintenance.
Mechanical Wear Prediction and Prevention - Providing an overview of tribological phenomena, this comprehensive reference details a practical methodology to determine the design parameters and materials necessary to obtain desired wear performances.

Practical Lubrication for Industrial Facilities - This text was written to provide those who must select and apply lubricants with a comprehensive resource on what products are available, what factors matter most in a lubricant, which lubricants are most effective for specific applications, and how to distinguish sales talk from relevant facts.
Predictive Corrosion and Failure Control in Process Operations - Thoroughly explains the principles behind Asset Loss Risk, an approach where expenses are controlled by identifying, then focusing on, those pieces of equipment most at risk of breakdown.
Preventive Maintenance - The text clearly illustrates how the components of any maintenance strategy are interlinked with dependencies and the performance measures necessary to properly manage the preventive maintenance program.
Preventive/Predictive Maintenance - Controlling your assets as opposed to your assets controlling you is one of the key goals of a solid maintenance strategy.  This manual can help you begin the process of not only preventing equipment failures, but also creating a system for predicting when they are going to occur.
