On the friction and adhesion hysteresis between polymer brushes attached to curved surfaces: Rate and solvation effects

Abstract

Computer simulations of friction between polymer brushes are usually simplified compared to real systems in terms of solvents and geometry. In most simulations, the solvent is only implicit with infinite compressibility and zero inertia. In addition, the model geometries are parallel walls rather than curved or rough as in reality. In this work, we study… (More)
