Abstract:

This report describes what is known about friction from models and experiments on a macroscopic scale, and what is being learned at the microscopic level. The book is a synthesis of the material from lectures, discussions and workshops. Although other relevant aspects of tribology, such as contact mechanics, surface treatments, and wear behavior, are reported, the emphasis here is on defining the state of knowledge and the gaps in understanding of friction processes.
