DOI:¬†http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.triboint.2015.09.016 Abstract:¬†Tribological phenomena are governed by combined effects of material properties, topology and surface-chemistry. We study the interplay of multiscale surface structures with molecular-scale interactions towards interpreting static frictional interactions at fractal interfaces. By spline-assisted-discretization we analyse asperity interactions…
