Insight into the Periodicity of Schallamach Waves in Soft Material Friction
A dominant mechanism in friction of soft material interfaces is the onset and propagation of Schallamach waves. Schallamach waves are “tunnels” of air that provide relative displacement between the
Sliding friction of rubber and Schallamach waves: a review
Abstract The phenomena accompanying the friction of a single hard hemispherical asperity on a smooth surface of a soft elastomer are studied at a microscale level as a function of the following
A theory of dynamic rubber friction
Abstract Assuming dynamic friction to arise from the shearing and subsequent breaking of distinct bonds between the rubbing members, a general equation is derived for the frictional force which
Adhesion of spheres : the JKR-DMT transition using a dugdale model
Abstract In the Johnson-Kendall-Roberts (JKR) approximation, adhesion forces outside the area of contact are neglected and elastic stresses at the edge of the contact are infinite, as in linear
How does rubber truly slide between Schallamach waves and stick–slip motion?
Abstract Schallamach waves have been investigated from a new viewpoint of their dynamic behaviour. Two new insights were introduced to elucidate the mechanism of the initiation and propagation of the
Nonmonotonic Aging and Memory in a Frictional Interface.
It is shown that following a two-step change in the normal load the system exhibits nonmonotonic aging and memory effects, two hallmarks of glassy dynamics, and this indicates that a frictional interface is a glassy system and strengthens the notion that non monotonic relaxation behavior is generic in such systems.
Elastic Deformation and the Laws of Friction
IT has been shown by Bowden and his co-workers1 that the classical law of friction F = µW is dependent on plastic deformation of the asperities in contact on the rubbing surfaces. In the case of high
Can two solids slide without slipping
Abstract The question posed is whether two solids that are pressed together and at the same time sheared can undergo a sliding motion without slip at the interface. The mechanism involves a
Rubber friction and the rheology of viscoelastic contact
Abstract The phenomena accompanying friction at low speeds (1–1500 μm/s) of a clean glass hemisphere ( R = 2 mm ) on a plate of soft, transparent, natural vulcanized rubber ( E ' = 1.6 × 10 7 dynes /
How Does Rubber Slide
Abstract Visual observations of contact areas between soft rubber sliders and hard tracks, and between hard sliders and soft rubber tracks, show that relative motion between the two frictional
