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 […]

Slip, No Slip and Cavitation

Engineering surfaces are heterogeneous and can be slippery or sticky locally depending on surface roughness and chemistry. The variation of surface properties affects the interaction between the wall and lubricant and determines friction. Slip can […]
