The role of friction in the mechanism of retaining the partial removable dentures with double crown system.
Cylindrical telescopic crowns belong to bolt dentures, because their adhesion strength is based on the friction force. The magnitude of static and slide friction forces depends on the strain withinExpand

The role of internal friction in the process of energy dissipation during PTFE composite sliding against steel
The state of strain varies in a polymer material during sliding against steel. The reasons for this are, among other things, imperfections of shape of the surface of the contacting steel element andExpand
