Structural Lubricity: A Recent Overview

Tribology is largely concerned with understanding of the (friction) forces acting at the interface between objects moving against each other (Menezes et al., 2013). Over the recent years there has been significant progress in understanding […]

Origins of Sliding Friction

Origin of sliding friction: role of lattice trapping The friction force acting on a block sliding on a substrate is usually nearly velocity independent unless the sliding speed is so low that thermal activation is […]
