Since the advent of tribology, conflicting fundamental laws regarding the relationship that exists between friction and contact area in dry sliding condition have existed. For example, during the late 1400’s, Leonardo da Vinci found that the friction that exists between ...


High-temperature tribology is of particular importance in industries where operational efficiency is affected by the exposure of materials and tribological interfaces to elevated temperatures. Various factors like elastic modulus, thermal conductivity, hardness, thermo-mechanical fatigue, diffusion, grain structure and oxidation can ...
