A numerical model of friction between rough surfaces

  title={A numerical model of friction between rough surfaces},
  author={Yu. A. Karpenko and Adnan Akay},
This paper describes a computational method to calculate the friction force between two rough surfaces. In the model used, friction results from forces developed during elastic deformation and shear resistance of adhesive junctions at the contact areas. Contacts occur between asperities and have arbitrary orientations with respect to the surfaces. The size and slope of each contact area depend on external loads, mechanical properties and topographies of surfaces. Contact force distribution is… CONTINUE READING
