[On Two Opposing (Bio)surfaces as Comprehended in Terms of an Extension of the Coulomb-Amontons Law of Friction, with Its Virtual Usefulness for Biotribology in Nanoscale].


An extension of the Coulomb-Amontons law is proposed in terms of an interaction-detail involving renormalization (simplified) n-th level scheme. The coefficient of friction is obtained in a general exponential (nonlinear) form, characteristic of virtually infinite (or, many body) level of the interaction map. Yet, its application for a hydration repulsion… (More)
