    Abstract : Tactile perception is considered an important contributor to the overall consumer experience of a product. However, what physical properties that create the specifics of tactile perception, are still not completely understood. READ MORE

  3. 3. Surfaces Designed for High and Low Friction

    Author : Ulrika Pettersson; Staffan Jacobson; Roland Larsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Materials science; tribology; friction; surface texture; surface design; low friction; high friction; boundary lubrication; DLC; embossing; Materialvetenskap; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis comprises tribological studies of extremely well-defined surfaces of different designs. Both low-friction and high-friction surfaces were manufactured and experimentally evaluated.In the low-friction studies, lithography and anisotropic etching of silicon was first used as a texturing technique.

  4. 4. Gear tribology : friction and surface topography

    Author : Li Xiao; Bengt-Göran Rosén; Liam Blunt; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Keywords : Friction; Surface topography; Toughness; Lay; Gears; Power transmission; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The quest for energy efficiency leads to the development of highly efficient power transmissions for vehicles. Gears are some of the most rugged and durable torque transmitters among machine elements. Friction between sliding surfaces at gear teeth is one major source of power loss. READ MORE

  5. 5. Surface Force and Friction : effects of adsorbed layers and surface topography

    Author : Xiaoyan Liu; Per Claesson; Bjorn Torger Stokke; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Friction; nanotribology; surface forces; diblock copolymer; lipid; QCM-D; AFM; optical reflectometry; neutron reflectivity; X-ray reflectivity; micro-patterned surface; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Interfacial features of polymers are a complex, fascinating topic, and industrially very important. There is clearly a need to understand interactions between polymer layers as they can be used for controlling surface properties, colloidal stability and lubrication. The aim of my Ph. READ MORE
