Reduced Friction: Inspired by Nature

Darvin’s theory of evolution is widely held concept which states that all the life has evolved from a common ancestor: fruits, animals, trees, flowers. During the gradual process of evolution, beneficial random genetic mutations in […]

So, what is it, superlubricity?

From the first friction quantitative experiments by Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) and most notably from our everyday life experience, it is known that there is an inevitable force opposing to the initiation of motion of […]

Macroscale superlubricity

  Friction rises when bodies come to contact and start relative sliding. This phenomenon occurs in many mechanical systems and it is estimated that over 30% of the fuel in cars is consumed to overcome […]

Anyone is up for challenge?

Society of tribology and lubrication engineers announced Contact Mechanics Challenge.   Dr. Martin Müser initiated a competition in calculation of a real contact area. He has already results of his own calculation and challenges other groups […]
